Effective Multilateralism

Search the site

The Institute of Social Sciences, Department of Politics, at the Christian Albrechts-University of Kiel (CAU) and the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) in Rome, with the support of the Volkswagen Stiftung , are establishing and fostering a European network of scholars and practitioners in order to examine the role of the European Union (EU) in the current wider reform process of the United Nations (UN).
In this context, the EUís foreign policy concept of effective multilateralism can play a decisive role: looking beyond the EUís rethoric, the network aims at assessing key cases of EU-UN interaction and cooperation with a view on their effectiveness. For this purpose, the reform of the Security Council and the cooperation in peace-keeping, peace-enforcing and peace-building will be scrutinised.
