International Solidarity:
Yesterday’s ideal or emerging key norm?

1-2 September 2018
House of the EKD, Berlin

The idea of international solidarity was implicit in the UN framework from the very first. But it took until the late 1990s for the term “solidarity” to finally find its way into universally agreed documents. The UN Millennium Declaration explicitly referred to solidarity as one of six fundamental values in international relations. Ironically, it was adopted at the end of a decade of cooperative multilateralism. Subsequently, solidarity seemed to lose its relevance as a guiding principle of international politics. So is international solidarity yesterday’s vision? Or are we witnessing another turning point in history in response to the current crises, leading to a revival of international solidarity? These and further questions will be explored at this year's International sef: Expert Workshop.
