Media as a Guardian of Democratic Values and Multilateral Institutions

KAS New York is facilitating this visit in the context of our dialogue program entitled “Media as a Guardian of Democratic Values and Multilateral Institutions”. Recognizing that the media can be a guardian of democratic values and multilateral institutions we would like to explore how free journalists and bloggers can report in a fact-based manner on democratic processes and the work of the UN. Additionally we will look into ways in which the United Nations can strengthen the rights of freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

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.

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?
