6 remarkable features of the new United Nations open source initiative


The United Nations wants to make technology, software, and intellectual property available to everyone, including developing countries. Open source and free software are great tools to achieve this goal since open source is all about empowering people and global collaboration while protecting the personal data and privacy of users. So, the United Nations and the open-source community share the same values.

Open source makes it possible for underdeveloped countries and regions to foster local companies and expertise by building on top of existing open-source software—standing on the shoulders of giants.

This new open-source strategy and policy is developed by the United Nations Technology Innovation Labs (UNTIL).

Mark Rutte says the world trade system and the UN have not kept pace with global change and the rise of China

Middle-power nations need to do more to reform flawed and failing global institutions such as the UN Security Council and the World Bank, not disengage from them, Netherlands PM Mark Rutte has told an Australian audience.

Speaking in Sydney on Thursday, Rutte said middle powers had grown safer and more prosperous under the rules-based order that emerged after the second world war, but that the 20th-century international order held structural flaws for the 21st century.
