Developing the Alliance

Achieving the goals of the Alliance requires continued efforts.

At the Paris Peace Forum on 11-13 November partner countries came together for a meeting on digital governance. Taking into account the impact of digitalization on economic, political and social development, Germany, France and other partners highlighted the importance of fostering the dialogue between states, international organizations, businesses, and civil society and renewed their commitment to tackle global challenges together.

Other upcoming opportunities to take the common effort forward will be, for instance, the Munich Security Conference on 14-16 February 2020.

The 75th anniversary of the United Nations in 2020 will be a pivotal moment to promote multilateralism (High-Level Event 21 September 2020).

There will also be further initiatives and events under the thematic headings of the Alliance, such as human rights, international humanitarian law, cyberspace, future technologies, disarmament and arms control, global public goods and strengthening international institutions.

Stay tuned!
