EXECUTIVE SECRETARY'S REPORTS

 
 
REPORT 2002
International relations, in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States of America, are undergoing a radical transformation.  The face of the world has changed, and the very foundations of the state are threatened.  There is a strong shift in the international agenda towards security issues and the fight against terrorism, almost to the detriment of aid for development.  In addition, the world economy is in recession, even as the world’s largest economic grouping put its common currency, the euro into circulation on 1 January 2002.
