In an earlier article, we analysed the actuality and potential of participation at the international level, or more specifically: at the level of the United Nations (un). Is there a demand for public participation in the work of the United Nations, and if so, who has such demands? And how should the un meet these demands? In this article we will apply the theory presented in the first article to a case study: global public participation in the drafting process, at the un, of the Sustainable Development Goals will be examined and assessed against the findings uncovered in the first article.
