#48 FEPS Talks: For a new, fair and inclusive multilateralism
By Foundation for European Progressive Studies
Ahead of the United Nations General Assembly and on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the UN, Salma Bava, Professor and Jean Monnet Chair, Centre for European Studies, at J. Nehru University in New Delhi, and Hedwig Giusto, FEPS Senior Policy Advisor and editor-in-chief of the Progressive Post, discuss of the urgent need to reform an increasingly weakened multilateral system. The Covid-19 crisis has exposed even more the shortcoming of a system, built on the wake of the second world war, which is no longer capable to cope with increasingly pressing challenges. But the pandemic has also clearly shown to what extent common challenges, that do not know borders or passports, need common answers by the international community. Against this background, fairness and inclusiveness should be two of the main features that a new multilateral system should have.
