Climate discussions before and beyond COP26s

The 76th General Assembly and Security Council meetings show that persistence pays off

Every year, the UN General Assembly commands worldwide attention, and heads of state and government, UN staff, activists, the private sector, and experts use this to draw attention to topics they deem important for global attention. Climate change - its impact and mitigation - was, next to COVID, a main issue for many participants. The Irish, who held the Security Council (SC) presidency during UNGA, used all three points - the global attention, climate as a main topic during the UNGA and their presidency of the SC - to hold a Security Council meeting on “Climate, Peace and Security”, a controversial topic in the SC, to pressure Russia and China.

Results and Implications

The current ruling coalition of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and Komeito won the 2021 general election. Fumio Kishida took over the Prime Ministership from Yoshide Suga only weeks before and has already pledged many reforms for the new government and Diet to put in action.

Australien, AUKUS und die Auswirkungen der Kündigung des australisch-französischen U-Boot Projektes

(This title is only available in German)

“As leaders of Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, guided by our enduring ideals and shared commitment to the international rules-based order, we resolve to deepen diplomatic, security, and defense cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region, including by working with partners, to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. As part of this effort, we are announcing the creation of an enhanced trilateral security partnership called ‘AUKUS’” – verkündeten Australien, die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika und Großbritannien in ihrer gemeinsamen Erklärung am 16. September 2021. Aber was genau beinhaltet „AUKUS“ und welche Auswirkungen hat die Ankündigung auf Australiens internationale politische Beziehungen?

Georgien nach den Kommunalwahlen 2021

Politischer Kreisverkehr ohne Ausfahrt

Am 30. Oktober 2021 fand in Georgien die zweite Runde der Regionalwahlen statt. In 20 großen Städten und selbstverwalteten Gebietskörperschaften kam es zu einer Stichwahl zwischen den Kandidaten der Regierungspartei Georgian Dream (GD) und Kandidaten der Opposition. Dabei gewann die Regierungspartei 19 von 20 Stichwahlen – zum Teil sehr knapp. Einzig in Tsalenjikha konnte sich der Kandidat der Opposition durchsetzen. GD hat angekündigt, dort die Stimmen nachzählen zu lassen. Gleichzeitig hat GD in sechs Gemeinden keine eigene Mehrheit mehr.

Für die Opposition unter Führung der UNM (United National Movement) ist das Ergebnis dennoch eine herbe Enttäuschung. Sie hatte sich gerade in großen Städten wie Batumi, Rustavi, Kutaisi oder Zugdidi große Chancen ausgerechnet. Für die Stichwahl zum Bürgermeisteramt in Tiflis trat der UNM-Vorsitzende Nika Melia mit einem bereits ausgehandelten Koalitionsvertrag an, der die anderen Oppositionsparteien personell großzügig berücksichtigte. Einen Tag nach der Stichwahl kündigte die UNM an, das Ergebnis nicht anzuerkennen. Massive Proteste wurden für das ganze Land angekündigt. Georgiens Innenpolitik dreht sich seit mehr als zwei Jahren in einer Dauerschleife aus Wahlen, Protesten und Nichtanerkennung von Resultaten. Ein Ende der extremen Polarisierung ist nicht in Sicht.
