On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) convened the fourth in a series of Civil Society Dialogues with the President of the United Nations Security Council at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

The dialogue featured H.E. Mr. Elbio Rosselli, Permanent Representative of Uruguay to the United Nations and President of the UN Security Council for the month of May. Mr. Bonian Golmohammadi, WFUNA’s Secretary-General, moderated the discussion that brought together over 25 UN-focused civil society representatives.

Ambassador Rosselli explained that the three significant items they added to the UN Security Council's program of work for May were a mission to Columbia and open debates on sexual violence in conflict and protection of civilians in conflict. He then answered questions from CSO representatives on a wide range of topics including youth involvement at the UN, Venezuela, Yemen, South Sudan, gender equality, among other issues.
