About the Network for Responsible Global Policy:
The Network for Responsible Global Policy is a project of Citizens for Global Solutions funded primarily by the Ford Foundation and the United Nations Foundation. The Network seeks to bring together organizations and individuals who support responsible global engagement in an increasingly interdependent world. Its goal is establish networks in all fifty U.S. states to facilitate the coordination and education of individuals who work on a wide range of global policy issues including arms control, climate change, development, human rights, and peace and security. By making the bridge between issues, global policy oriented NGOs will dramatically increase the effectiveness of their supporters as advocates.
The views expressed by organizations and their representatives at various press conferences are their own and are not necessarily endorsed or supported by either the Network for Responsible Global Policy or Citizens for Global Solutions.Read more »
