The Current Column, 11 September 2020
On 15 September, the world celebrates one of humanity’s greatest success models: democracy. Yet today, democracy finds itself under pressure from both internal and external forces, and there are now more autocracies than democracies in the world for the first time in almost 20 years. The international community must act now and engage in democracy protection.
Weinlich, Silke / Max-Otto Baumann / Erik Lundsgaarde (2020)
Germany has become the second-largest funder of UN humanitarian and development work, but its funding is rather fragmented and restricted. To be an effective supporter of multilateralism, the German Government should adopt a coordinated, strategically informed approach to funding UN organizations.
