Global Cooperation in Times of Multiple Crises

Prof. Dr Anna-Katharina Hornidge discussed future cooperation opportunities at a hybrid T20-T7 roundtable and an event in Milan on innovative growth in Europe.

24 February marked the anniversary of the Russian war against aggression on Ukraine. While the war presented the international community with new global challenges, it also highlighted the importance of multilateral cooperation formats that strengthen existing partnerships and foster new forms of multilateral cooperation. The official engagement groups Think7 (T7) and Think20 (T20), which respectively accompany and advise the Group of 7 (G7) and the Group of 20 (G20), represent such cooperation formats by bringing together scholars from countries of different income groups to jointly develop recommendations for action on current global challenges.

On 14 February, Prof Dr Anna-Katharina Hornidge, Director of IDOS and co-chair of a T7 Japan task force, participated in a hybrid T20-T7 panel on „Rethinking Global Cooperation in a Fractured World“. During the event organised by G20 and T20 India, the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and the Rockefeller Foundation, Yose Rizal Damuri, Executive Director of CSIS, Sujan R. Chinoy, Chair of T20 India, Sunaina Kumar, Executive Director of T20 India, John Beirne, Research Fellow at the Asian Development Bank Institute and T7 Japan, and Anna-Katharina Hornidge reflected on existing and future cooperation opportunities between the G7 and G20. Anna-Katharina Hornidge emphasised the interplay of different global governance levels, including the G7, G20, T7 and T20, which are gaining importance especially against the background of a weakened UN system.

The EU represents another important level of governance. In view of the increasing inflation in Europe in 2022, which was also, but not only, set in whole by the consequences of the Ukraine war, Anna-Katharina Hornidge participated in an event in Milan on 07 February, which dealt with future and innovative forms of growth in Europe. At the event, organised by the Italian Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI), Ms Hornidge discussed the global implications of sustainable growth, the EU’s dependency on rare earths and the most important policy areas for investment for the future with representatives from politics, academia and business.
