The future of the multilateral, rule-based international order (The Federal Trust et al.)

22 June 2021, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Webinar organised by The Federal Trust for Education & Research, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and Global Policy Institute.

75 years after the multilateral international order was established through the foundation of the United Nations, it is now facing major challenges. Under attack from unilateralist leaders such as Donald Trump, and faced with new global challenges such as climate change, the Covid pandemic and the rise of China as a world power, adaptation and renewal may now be necessary for the rule-based international order to further its global aims. Topics for discussion will be: How can multilateralism adapt to the new challenges and ensure its relevance in the future global system? Will the arrival of Biden’s US administration herald a change in the US’s commitment to the multilateral institutions? What role should and will China play in the rule-based system?


  • Dr Olaf Wientzek, Director, Multilateral Dialogue Geneva, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung
  • Velina Tchakarova, Director, Austrian Institute for European and Security Policy (AIES), Vienna
  • Dr Zachary Paikin, Researcher at the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS); Nonresident Research Fellow with the Institute for Peace & Diplomacy in Toronto; Senior Visiting Fellow, Global Policy Institute
