Scholars from both the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies (SIIS) and the German Development Institute (DIE) emphasise the historic significance of the post-2015 agenda which aims at defining a universal paradigm of sustainable development, and they maintain that poverty eradication and the unfinished business of the Millennium Development Goals must stand at the centre of the new framework.
