Multilateral Diplomacy

The international order has been thrown into turmoil as the era of U.S. primacy fades and shifting power relations revive great power politics. Disruptive regional powers and a divided Security Council are hindering UN peacemaking. The changing nature of conflict, coupled with an increasingly complex geopolitical landscape, affect the capacity of regional organisations like the African Union to maintain peace and security. Today’s conflicts are seldom fought or solved without outside influence, and while multilateral diplomacy is under siege, it remains undefeated. In our work, we advocate at the global and regional levels for the importance of multilateralism in conflict prevention and resolution.
