Finland relies on the multilateral and rules-based international order to address global challenges. Geopolitical rivalry between China, Russia and the United States has nevertheless brought the multilateral system with its organizations, rules and networks under threat. The United Nations is weakened in a time when concerted action would be needed more than ever. Without multilateral efforts global challenges such as climate change, the ongoing health crisis, migration flows, and cybersecurity cannot be solved. Besides the launch of concrete intergovernmental initiatives to strengthen multilateralism, further reflection is needed on the many forms and meanings of multilateralism. Can multilateralism be saved? Is multilateralism in a crisis or in a stage of transformation? What kind of initiatives can strengthen multilateralism? How can inclusive multilateralism be ensured?
The webinar is organised in cooperation with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.
