Happy Holidays from the Embassy of Liechtenstein - 2020 has certainly been quite a year.

Perspectives on the UN at 75

Foreign Minister Katrin Eggenberger on "Perspectives on the UN at 75" and the future of the hosted by Women in International Security and the Embassy of Liechtenstein: "Women and children are among the ones who pay the highest price during conflict. It is therefore key that our common responses are gender-sensitive and take into account the special needs of women and girls. Equally important is to recognize that women are not only victims, but also agents of change. In order to build back better, women must play an active role and be enabled to do so in leadership positions… Building back better also means building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels, providing equal access to justice for all, and promoting the rule of law at the national and international level… The UN – at the center of the international rules-based order - will continue to play a key role in this regard. The UN Charter provides us with guidance to strengthen international cooperation and solidarity, we should never forget its value and defend it whenever necessary."
