The Alliance for Multilateralism, launched during the UN General Assembly of the United Nations in September 2019 by the French and German Foreign Ministers, is an informal network of countries united in the conviction that a multilateral order is the only reliable guarantee for international stability and peace and that the common challenges can only be solved through cooperation.
The Alliance aims to renew the global commitment to stabilize and to defend the international order principles based on the multilateral cooperation. It promotes a multilateral agenda in full respect of the vital role of the United Nations Charter and international law. It aims also to protect, preserve the norms, agreements and international institutions in danger; to pursue a proactive agenda in policy areas that lack effective governance and where new challenges require collective action; to advance reforms, without compromising on key principles and values, in order to make multilateral institutions and the global political and economic order more inclusive and effective.
The multi-stakeholder approach adopted involves all members of the international community, international organizations, regional institutions and non-state actors, key partners for the challenges related to the issues of peace, security, climate change, human rights, development and digital transformation.
