Impact of the War in Ukraine on Multilateralism and the World Order - Multilateral Dialogue Geneva
The Russian attack on Ukraine has global humanitarian, political, economic and security repercussions. It is raising questions about national sovereignty, multilateralism and global order. The war has led to a global humanitarian crisis, as well as a global political, economic and security crises. International organizations have struggled to contain and manage the war, and especially the United Nations Security Council has been powerless in responding to the war. How can multilateralism be reinvigorated? What conclusions do Europe and especially Germany draw from the war in Ukraine and its own stance on multilateralism? How can it rebalance energy security and diversify supply chains? At the same time how can Europe ensure that the steeper price increases for food and fuel will not spur event greater unrest worldwide?
In order to help us to understand these complex issues, three distinguished speakers will explore how to respond to this new global security environment. They will discuss what strategic choices can Europe make to create a more stable world order built on multilateralism, cooperative security and diplomacy, and how to reform the global order to make it not only more resilient to future wars -- but also pandemics, climate change and technological innovations.
