[UNat70] For our second last event of our "The United Nations at 70: Fit for 'The Future We Want'?" lecture series, we had the pleasure to welcome the Prof. Dr. Rudolf Stichweh, and the Director of our cooperation partner, the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), Dirk Messner.

The 70th anniversary of the United Nations is a chance to look back, not only at the history of the UN but also at the ideas of world orders. In his presentation, Rudolf Stichweh gave an overview of the ideas and models of a world order. He started out with Jan Smuts, who draw a vision of "associations of states" with the Commonwealth, USA and an "outer circle of free democracies" at the core. Prof. Stichweh also recalled Linden A. Mander who published a book "Foundations of Modern World Society". In his remarks, Rudolf Stichweh introduced six alternative ideas of 'World Oder'. As an expert in world society, he, of course, focuses on the conceptualization of a World Society, with its broad functional differentiation. "In the World Society political order [in the sense of nation-state based netoworks] is only one dimension of others, as there plural word order possible".

"Thinking about peace & world orders in the shadow of disasters & world wars is very difficult" stated Prof. Dr. Dirk Messer in his response. He added more alternative concepts of world order and described the current mode of multilateralism. Looking at change processes, one where raised was: "What drives transformation processes?"
