Freedom, Peace, Security and Development: The United Nations between Ambition and Reality

October 27, 2020, 6:30 pm | Zoom

In 2020 the United Nations will have existed for 75 years. Founded against the backdrop of the catastrophe of the Second World War, the mission of the United Nations comprises nothing less than the preservation of world peace and the promotion of international understanding while securing prosperity in a freely organized world society.

The following questions arise especially under the influence of the Corona Pandemic:

But what has the world organization been able to achieve and what role should and can it play in the future in securing global peace in the face of an increasingly multipolar world order? What are the prospects of success for urgently needed reforms of the World Organization? Ideas on this subject are also divergent in the face of enormous challenges such as climate change, technological upheavals, new violent conflicts and fundamental shifts of power in the international system.

The intention of this event was to take a political stock of the role of the United Nations in the fields of peace, security and development - including current challenges such as violent conflicts in the Middle East, the Horn of Africa and the Sahel, global refugee movements, the spread of epidemics and the struggle for a new climate policy.
