Gespräch

Unter Druck: Multilateralismus, Partnerschaften und strategische Allianzen

Online-Gespräch mit anschließender Diskussionsrunde

Europa und die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika sehen sich mit globalen Herausforderungen konfrontiert, die weder geographische Grenzen respektieren noch mit nationalen Antworten zu lösen sind. Die COVID-19 Pandemie hat nochmals erneut akzentuiert, was sich bereits zuvor abzeichnete: Fragen der globalen Gesundheit, des Klimawandels, und der Rüstungskontrolle, ein zunehmend aggressiver agierendes Russland sowie eine selbstbewusste und den Einfluss ausdehnende Volksrepublik China sind Herausforderungen, die einer gemeinsamen Antwort bedürfen. Daher ist es dringender denn je, eine weitere Fragmentierung des multilateralen Systems zu verhindern.

The nexus of health and security

Early warning, crisis management, and increased resilience in a multilateral framework

COVID-19 hit the international community unprepared irrespective of the fact that a variety of global risk analysis as well as national security strategies cited pandemics as a likely risk scenario for forthcoming decades. To the contrary, countries had reduced for years their stockpiles of PPE and relied on global production chains for strategic equipment. The velocity of the virus’ spread around the globe dwarfed any attempts for mere national responses. Its impact on societies, health systems and economies underlined the need for comprehensive responses cross-cutting across health, economic, and security sectors.

Das Schweigen des UN-Sicherheitsrats in der Covid-19 Pandemie

Während die Generalsversammlung der Vereinten Nationen bereits zwei Resolutionen zur Corona-Pandemie verabschiedete, war vom UN-Sicherheitsrat bisher kaum etwas zu hören. Ob ein Ende dieser Paralyse des mächtigen UN-Gremiums in Sicht ist, wollen wir am 4.Mai mit unseren Experten diskutieren.

Book launch "FeMALE Diplomacy - Women in Foreign Policy"

Only a few women sit at the negotiating table when it comes to war and peace. Foreign and security policy remains a largely male dominated domain in politics. As of June 2019, 11 women are serving as Head of State and 12 are serving as Head of Government. As of January 2019, only 20.7 per cent of government ministers worldwide were women. The five most commonly held portfolios by women ministers are: Social Affairs; followed by Family/Children/Youth/Elderly/Disabled; Environment/Natural Resources/Energy; Employment/Labour/Vocational Training; and Trade/Industry.

Women in Politics fostering Digital Inclusion

Women are 12% less likely to use the internet globally than men. In low and middle-income countries, the gap between women’s use and that of men even widens to 26%. Most pronounced becomes this digital divide in LDCs, where women are 33% less likely than men to use the internet. These digital inequalities matter particularly as digital technologies, including the internet, are having increasingly profound impacts also on other aspects of economy, society and culture. Any action to enhance digital equality therefore has not only important positive impacts on gender equality in general but also contributes to the development of societies. In order to enhance women’s equality and empowerment through digital inclusion all stakeholders need to work together in order to foster skills and education, to provide connectivity, and to create adequate policy frameworks.

Luncheon Debate "The female face of migration"

Although the share of women in the total number of international migrants fell from 49.3% (2000) to 47.9% in 2019, the situation varies across regions. In North America, Europe and Oceania the percentage of migrating women has surpassed 50%. Also Latin America and the Caribbean are hosting already 49.9% of migrant women. These women often migrate alone in search for better jobs, education opportunities and greater freedoms. On their journey or in their countries of destination they often become victims of fraud, abuse, rape or discrimination. According to UNODC data the majority of victims of human trafficking are women and young girls (71%). This data clearly highlights the need to strengthen the instruments for protection, but also for information campaigns amongst migrant women. We cordially invite you to discuss with our panelists how current challenges can best be addressed.

Land rights for women as a factor for development

In half of the world, women are still unable to assert their land and property rights. Although inroads have been made over the years on the legal side, the gap between law and practice remains. According to FAO data, agricultural productivity could be enhanced by 20% to 30% if more women would have secure tenure of the land they are working on. In many societies, be it in Latin America, Sub-Sahara Africa or even in the Balkans, discriminatory social practices still prevent to harvest the benefits for socio-economic development that secure land rights for women could bring. Therefore, we invite you to discuss with our panelists how a lack of understanding of laws within communities and families can be addressed, how women can gain better access to legal services and how also other relevant factors such as financial instruments need to be adjusted.

Globale Schuldenkrise und COVID19 – ein verlorenes Jahrzehnt für die Entwicklungszusammenarbeit?

Welchen Einfluss hat die COVID19-Pandemie auf die Verschuldungssituation von Entwicklungsländern? Wie wirkt sich die drohende Schuldenkrise auf die Erreichung des SDGs aus? Wie kann Kreditvergabe für Entwicklungsländer nachhaltiger gestaltet werden - und wie kann sich die Weltgemeinschaft dabei einbringen? Über diese und weitere Fragen sprachen am 5. Mai die Teilnehmenden einer Onlinediskussion, die gemeinsam von den KAS-Büros Bonn, New York und Berlin der Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung über Zeitzonen- und Landesgrenzen hinweg organisiert wurde.

The Impact of Elected Members on the Security Council’s Agenda: Germany’s Sixth Tenure in 2019-2020

Panel Discussion Followed by Q&A Session

Every eight years, Germany aspires to become an elected member to the Security Council. The last two years have certainly been rich in expected but also unpredictable challenges. With nationalist and populist politics on the rise, multilateralism and international cooperation had to face obstructive policies and actions. With Ambassador Heusgen, who has represented Germany since 2017 in New York and who was the foreign policy advisor of Chancellor Angela Merkel for 13 years, the panellists assessed the last two years on the Council but discussed the impact elected members, the so-called E10, can have.
