Security Council urged to bring multilateralism ‘alive’, to tackle serious global challenges

10 June 2021

Peace and Security

Rules-based multilateralism is not a simple or appealing phrase, a top European Union (EU) official told the Security Council on Thursday, “but our job is to bring it alive”.

Josep Borrell, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, said that without “global cooperation based on agreed rules” we risk “the law of the jungle, where problems don’t get solved”. 

“Every day we see the cost of the absence of multilateral action: reduced access to vaccines, insufficient climate action, peace and security crises that fester”, he said.

Prevention, peace building 

According to the EU envoy, the world’s “biggest changes” stem from new technologies, which can be both disruptive and empowering.  

Emerging technologies must reflect the values of the Declaration of Human Rights or a “nightmarish scenario” will follow, he warned. 

“We all know that conflict prevention and peace building are key”, said Mr. Borrell, urging States to work with countries at risk “before conflict erupts”. 

COVID impact 

Now, in the second year of the COVID pandemic, the world must learn how human health and security are linked with that of the planet, said the High Representative.  

“Where politics gave us stalemates and divisions, science and cooperation gave us the exit strategy: vaccines. The EU is a staunch promoter of vaccine multilateralism”, with the UN-led equitable vaccine distribution initiative COVAX at its centre, he said.  

Beyond the pandemic 

Climate change and biodiversity loss have reached existential levels, the EU envoy pointed out.  

He called UN Summits in Kunming and Glasgow, later this year, “a real test of the multilateral system”, underscoring the need that they produce “real outcomes, in line with the scale and urgency of the problem”.  

To give impetus to the success of the Summits, he hoped the Council would pass a resolution on the increasingly evident link between climate change and growing insecurity. 

‘Paralysed by vetoes’ 

The Security Council continues to be “paralysed by vetoes and political infighting”, said Mr. Borrell, reminding the Ambassadors that theirs is “a serious responsibility, politically, even morally”.  

On matters of peace and security, there is no other organization the EU can turn to, he said, calling for it “to match its belated but unanimous support for…a global ceasefire with a full commitment to its implementation”. 

Working with Iran 

Turning to the Iranian nuclear agreement, Mr. Borrell said the EU was working “on a non-stop basis” to revive the deal “in all its aspects”.   

While making progress, he acknowledged that discussions are “intense and slow”, saying that there is still “a lot of work to be done”. UN Photo/Eskinder DebebeSecurity Council meets on Cooperation between the UN and the European Union in maintaining international peace and security.

Castigating Belarus 

The High Representative painted a grim picture of subjugation in Belarus, from “massive repression of peaceful protestors” to the “scandalous” forced landing of a civilian plane traveling between two European capitals to arrest a journalist.   

Meeting the “major attack” with a “firm and principled” response, he said, the EU has closed its air space to Belarus airlines and is adopting a new package of sanctions, while also devising a three billion euros package of economic support for “a democratic Belarus”.  

Council instrumentalizes Ukraine 

Mr. Borrell said that Ukraine was being “instrumentalized” by the Security Council for political purposes. 

Noting that while unanimously supporting the Minsk Agreement to end the war in the eastern Ukraine, he said, very little implementation has been done, and urged the Ambassadors to step up their responsibility to deconflict the region. 

“The European Union will not rest until all countries of the region will be inside of the European Union”, the EU representative said. 

To this end, the EU is supporting reconciliation and reforms as “the best antidote to nationalist rhetoric”. 

Multilateralism, said Mr. Borrell, is “the most effective tool for tackling the most serious and complex global challenges”.  

“My plea is for pragmatism, solidarity and humanity. The multilateral system must deliver common goods as defined by international law, norms and agreements”, he said.

NSF and NCSES release 2021 Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering report

Report provides statistical information about participation in science and engineering education and employment

Washington DC – The National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics released its 2021 Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering report.

The biennial report provides detailed information about participation levels of underrepresented groups in science and engineering education and employment.

“Ensuring accessibility and inclusivity in STEM is essential to cultivate a robust U.S. science and engineering enterprise,” said NSF Director Sethuraman Panchanathan. “This report provides useful information that helps us understand where we are and where we need to go. We must continue to work collaboratively for inclusive change that results in a STEM workforce that reflects the population of our nation.”

Key topic areas in the report include enrollment, field of degree, employment status and occupation, including academic careers. The report focuses on women, persons with disabilities, and minorities from three racial and ethnic groups: Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino, and American Indian or Alaska Native. These groups tend to have less representation in S&E than in the U.S. population.

“We are excited to provide this important resource on the status of women, minorities and persons with disabilities in STEM,” said NCSES Director Emilda B. Rivers. “The WMPD report serves to inform policymakers and the science and engineering communities on issues impacting underrepresented groups over time. The report also provides a valuable resource to academic researchers and community leaders to further the discourse on STEM representation.”

Congress mandated the report in the Science and Engineering Equal Opportunities Act of 1980 as part of NSF’s mission to encourage and strengthen the participation of underrepresented groups.

Discrete Geometry 

and combinatorial geometry are branches of geometry that study combinatorial properties and constructive methods of discrete geometric objects. Most questions in discrete geometry involve finite or discrete sets of basic geometric objects, such as pointslinesplanescirclesspherespolygons, and so forth. The subject focuses on the combinatorial properties of these objects, such as how they intersect one another, or how they may be arranged to cover a larger object.

Discrete geometry has a large overlap with convex geometry and computational geometry, and is closely related to subjects such as finite geometrycombinatorial optimizationdigital geometrydiscrete differential geometrygeometric graph theorytoric geometry, and combinatorial topology.

Quantum Entanglement 

is a physical phenomenon that occurs when a pair or group of particles is generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in a way such that the quantum state of each particle of the pair or group cannot be described independently of the state of the others, including when the particles are separated by a large distance. The topic of quantum entanglement is at the heart of the disparity between classical and quantum physics: entanglement is a primary feature of quantum mechanics lacking in classical mechanics.

Measurements of physical properties such as positionmomentumspin, and polarization performed on entangled particles are found to be perfectly correlated. For example, if a pair of entangled particles is generated such that their total spin is known to be zero, and one particle is found to have clockwise spin on a first axis, then the spin of the other particle, measured on the same axis, will be found to be counterclockwise. However, this behavior gives rise to seemingly paradoxical effects: any measurement of a property of a particle results in an irreversible wave function collapse of that particle and will change the original quantum state. In the case of entangled particles, such a measurement will affect the entangled system as a whole.

Such phenomena were the subject of a 1935 paper by Albert EinsteinBoris Podolsky, and Nathan Rosen, and several papers by Erwin Schrödinger shortly thereafter, describing what came to be known as the EPR paradox. Einstein and others considered such behavior to be impossible, as it violated the local realism view of causality (Einstein referring to it as “spooky action at a distance“) and argued that the accepted formulation of quantum mechanics must therefore be incomplete.


(from FrenchartisanItalianartigiano) is a skilled craft worker who makes or creates material objects partly or entirely by hand. These objects may be functional or strictly decorative, for example furnituredecorative artsculptureclothingjewelleryfood items, household items and tools and mechanisms such as the handmade clockwork movement of a watchmaker. Artisans practice a craft and may through experience and aptitude reach the expressive levels of an artist.

The adjective “artisanal” is often used in describing hand-processing in contrast to an industrial process, such as in the phrase artisanal mining. Thus, “artisanal” is sometimes used in marketing and advertising as a buzz word to describe or imply some relation with the crafting of handmade food products, such as breadbeverages or cheese. Many of these have traditionally been handmade, rural or pastoral goods but are also now commonly made on a larger scale with automated mechanization in factories and other industrial areas.

Artisans were the dominant producers of consumer products before the Industrial Revolution.

In ancient Greece, artisans were drawn to agoras and often built workshops nearby.


is a flexible material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibers (yarn or thread). Yarn is produced by spinning raw fibres of woolflaxcottonhemp, or other materials to produce long strands. Textiles are formed by weavingknittingcrochetingknotting , tattingfelting, or braiding.

The related words “fabric” and “cloth” and “material” are often used in textile assembly trades (such as tailoring and dressmaking) as synonyms for textile. However, there are subtle differences in these terms in specialized usage. A textile is any material made of interlacing fibres, including carpeting and geotextiles. A fabric is a material made through weaving, knitting, spreading, crocheting, or bonding that may be used in production of further goods (garments, etc.). Cloth may be used synonymously with fabric but is often a piece of fabric that has been processed.

Neuropsychology is a branch of psychology that is concerned with how the brain and the rest of the nervous system influence a person’s cognition and behaviors. More importantly, professionals in this branch of psychology often focus on how injuries or illnesses of the brain affect cognitive functions and behaviors. (Wikipedia)

Liberal Arts Education

the quadrivium (plural: quadrivia) is the four subjects, or arts (namely arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy), taught after teaching the trivium. The word is Latin, meaning four ways, and its use for the four subjects has been attributed to Boethius or Cassiodorus in the 6th century. Together, the trivium and the quadrivium comprised the seven liberal arts (based on thinking skills), as distinguished from the practical arts (such as medicine and architecture). For most medieval scholars, who believed that God created the universe according to geometric and harmonic principlesscience – particularly geometry and astronomy – was linked directly to the divine. To seek these principles, therefore, would be to seek God. The quadrivium consisted of arithmeticgeometrymusic, and astronomy. These followed the preparatory work of the trivium, consisting of grammarlogic, and rhetoric. In turn, the quadrivium was considered the foundation for the study of philosophy (sometimes called the “liberal art par excellence“) and theology. The quadrivium was the upper division of the medieval education in the liberal arts, which comprised arithmetic (number), geometry (number in space), music (number in time), and astronomy (number in space and time). Educationally, the trivium and the quadrivium imparted to the student the seven liberal arts (essential thinking skills) of classical antiquity.


are academic disciplines that study aspects of human society and culture. In the Renaissance, the term contrasted with divinity and referred to what is now called classics, the main area of secular study in universities at the time. Today, the humanities are more frequently contrasted with natural, and sometimes social sciences, as well as professional training.

The humanities use methods that are primarily critical, or speculative, and have a significant historical element—as distinguished from the mainly empirical approaches of the natural sciences, yet, unlike the sciences, it has no central discipline. The humanities include the study of ancient and modern languagesliteraturephilosophyhistoryarchaeologyanthropologyhuman geographylawpoliticsreligion, and art.

Scholars in the humanities are “humanity scholars” or humanists. The term “humanist” also describes the philosophical position of humanism, which some “antihumanist” scholars in the humanities reject. The Renaissance scholars and artists were also called humanists. Some secondary schools offer humanities classes usually consisting of literature, global studies and art.

Human disciplines like historyfolkloristics, and cultural anthropology study subject matters that the manipulative experimental method does not apply to—and instead mainly use the comparative method and comparative research. (Wikipedia)
