At a time where important international players show less interest in fostering the multilateral rules-based system, expectations on Germany and the EU are running high to provide new impetus to the rules-based global order, developing a more assertive, geo-political policy agenda which is still seen by many global partners as the EU’s  greatest weakness.

The Multinational Development Policy Dialogue KAS Brussels will closely inform and analyse the German Presidency’s external dimension, offering a broad range of products. In particular, the #MDPD will feature several dedicated podcasts titled “Talking PresiDEncy” on our SoundCloud channel.
