Strengthening Democracy for More Effective Multilateralism

283 283 people viewed this event.

The war in Ukraine has global implications, including for the future of multilateralism. It is bringing into focus some of the longer-term trends around a renewed wave of authoritarianism and populism in national politics. These trends in turn undermine the multilateral system, which was designed and established following World War II with the core objective of maintaining peace and promoting prosperity. Faced with the evidence of devastating conflicts in Syria, Yemen, Ethiopia and now Ukraine, we need to understand where the multilateral system is failing, and how we can address these challenges. An element of the solution may lie in a renewed focus on the principles and the practice of democracy, at both the national and the international level. 

What changes to the multilateral system do we need, in order to increase the likelihood that political problems can be resolved through dialogue and compromise rather than violence and brute force? How can we make sure that democracy support and security-focused policies become complementary and mutually reinforcing?

This event – organized between the Inter-Parliamentary Union, Club de Madrid, and the Kofi Annan Foundation – will explore these themes on 23 June at 10:30am CET.

Danilo Türk – President of Club de Madrid and member of the High-Level Advisory Board – is one of the speakers.
