The Körber Stiftung’s 171st Bergedorf Round Table addressed the question of how the rule-based international system might be modified and strengthened. The event was opened by former Swedish prime minister Carl Bildt and by president of the GIGA Professor Amrita Narlikar. Afterwards, she and 34 other high-ranking delegates from politics, management, think tanks, science, and the media discussed the increasing problems facing the multilateral system.
Is the multilateral system as we know it on the brink of collapse? How might it be re-strengthened? The threat to the global trading system was also the theme of this three-day event.
The GIGA has a new board member: Prof. Dr. Eckart Woertz today takes up his position as Director of the GIGA Institute of Middle East Studies.
Prof. Amrita Narlikar shares her thoughts on the state of the world – and all things global – in a monthly column, “Globale Gedanken,” in the national newspaper Tagesspiegel.
The new Journal of Current Southeast Asian Affairs deals, among other things, with the resurgence of ideology in Indonesia, the admission of Timor-Leste to ASEAN, the interests and strategies of the USA and the EU in South East Asia and other topics from the region.
