Invitation to the official launch event: Our Common Digital Future

Charter for a Sustainable Digital Age

The recently published report of the UN Secretary-General’s High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation recommends to develop goals, principles and priority actions for a Global Commitment for Digital Cooperation. The German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU) strongly supports this proposal. Considering the great transformative force of digitalization, it is striking that digital technology hardly features in the SDGs. Both digitalization and the 2030 Agenda are key drivers of global change and must be brought into alignment to enable global sustainable development. In its latest report, Towards Our Common Digital Future, WBGU argues that this effort requires a normative reference frame and advocates a Global Charter for a Sustainable Digital Age.

Diskussion

Data as Political Capital

What kind of Rules & Regulations do we need for a a digitized Democracy?

Digitization has completely altered the way our societies communicate and how political opinion-making is shaped. Foreign interference, online hate-speech, data leaks on social media platforms and fake-news have made it more important than ever to define a global rules-based system and code of conduct that sets a common standard and protects democracy. The discussion with Germany’s leading startup for Digital Political Communications and Teddy Goff, one of America’s key figures from the campaigning landscape, will provide a state of the lay of current debates in Europe and the US, and will draw attention to the action that needs to be taken in order to have resilient democracies in the age of new technologies and artificial intelligence.

Fachkonferenz

Strengthening the Voice of Europe at the United Nations

Fachkonferenz

For many years, calls have been loud and clear for the European Union to become a more cohesive foreign policy player that „speaks with one voice“ and brings to bear the unified political weight of Europe in international affairs. With a few notable exceptions, these calls have produced very limited results. The EU, despite its formal aspirations for a Common Foreign and Security Policy, has never been able to transform itself into a heavyweight in international diplomacy. By and large, its relevance in the global arena comes mainly through its weight as a unified trading bloc and through the relative wealth of its core members. In the realm of security and defense and international crisis management, the EU is mostly perceived as a lightweight dependent on the United States for its security and the protection of its interests around the world. Its diplomatic power has thus come to bear mostly within the framework of transatlantic relations, and in tight lockstep with Washington.

Invitation to celebrate the new Green Industry Platform

To celebrate the re-launch of the Green Industry Platform, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) and the Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP) will hold an interactive walk-through of the new Platform. The Green Industry Platform is an easy-to-use online database of information, tools, and practical guidance to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) become more efficient, competitive and sustainable by going green. A joint initiative of the Global Green Growth Institute, the OECD, UN Environment, UNIDO, and the World Bank, under the auspices of the GGKP, the new Green Industry Platform builds on the current global momentum for addressing environmental challenges by providing a comprehensive and neutral sustainability knowledge platform for the business community. The platform is designed to encourage the discovery and application of cutting-edge knowledge to achieve real-world change, by advancing environmental sustainability and strengthening commercial competitiveness. Together with the Green Industry Platform founders, join industry and policy experts at this informal lunch session to discover the new Platform.

LAC of multilateral leadership?

How the Latin American and Caribbean region engages in the multilateral system, its current challenges and its untapped opportunities

The Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region stands at a critical moment for global governance. It has a rare opportunity to shape agendas of the G-20, the UN Summit of the Future, the Conference of the Parties (COPs) on climate and biodiversity, as well as the Fourth Conference on Financing for Development and the ECOSOC agenda. However, while the region stands at the epicenter of global debates, it does not live up to its full potential for exerting multilateral leadership. How can the region overcome this lack of multilateral leadership?

Key Priorities of the Foreign Policy of Greece in View of the Candidature to the UN Security Council 2025-2026

A Conversation with H.E. George Gerapetritis, Foreign Minister of the Hellenic Republic

Amid unprecedented global challenges and multiplying conflicts, the United Nations Security Council—as the primary organ tasked with maintaining peace and security worldwide—remains more critical than ever. However, widening geopolitical rifts, intensifying political polarization, and the misuse of veto power by its permanent members have paralyzed the Council, constricting its action on pressing issues. Non-permanent, or elected, members have a unique opportunity to positively impact and influence the Council’s work and dynamics.

Workshop: Beyond the SIDS4 Conference

Bosnia and Herzegovina: Recent Developments, Pending Challenges & Outlook

A Conversation with High Representative Christian Schmidt

Nearly 30 years after the landmark Dayton Agreement, Bosnia and Herzegovina continues to face ongoing political instability, ethnic tensions, separatist rhetoric and actions, and systemic corruption, among other challenges.

Transitional Justice in the 21st Century:

Rethinking Justice through Colombia’s Special Jurisdiction for Peace

JEP is the judicial component of the Comprehensive System for Peace responsible for administering restorative transi¬tional justice, fostering transformation towards peace and repairing social structures, and ensuring the victim’s rights and legal security of those appearing before this tribunal.

The Road to Koblenz:

Pathways for international justice through the exercise of universal jurisdiction in Germany

In February 2021, for example, the Koblenz Higher Regional Court sentenced Eyad A to four and a half years in prison, followed by Anwar R’s conviction two years later in January 2022. These rulings represented an unprecedented state action against impunity for brutalities committed under the Bashar al-Assad regime. What accounts for such prosecutorial and judicial assertiveness in Germany? Under what conditions is this litigation and prosecution possible before German courts?
