Italy re-elected in New York as a member of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations for the three-year period 2025-2027

On 7 June 2024 Italy was re-elected in New York as a member of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations for the three-year period 2025-2027, with 183 votes out of 190 voting countries. 

We were the most voted country within the Group of Western Countries in the three-year mandate election round, ahead of the Netherlands, Switzerland and Canada. 

The re-election, which gives continuity to the current mandate for the period 2022-24, is a reaffirmation of the solid reputation Italy has built in multilateral diplomacy for sustainability and international cooperation, specifically strengthening the Italian partnership with developing countries and, in particular, with those on the African continent. A reputation built over the ten mandates Italy has held so far since the body was established in 1946. 

ECOSOC is the second most representative body of the United Nations, constituting the world’s largest platform for all sustainable development issues, involving not only governments but also many civil society actors. 

Established by the UN Charter in 1946, the Council has 54 members: 14 African countries; 11 from Asia and the Pacific; 6 from Eastern Europe; 10 from Latin America and the Caribbean and 13 from the West.
