On December 10, 2019, Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs, François-Philippe Champagne, will attend the Alliance for Multilateralism conference in Berlin. The conference theme is 'Advocating Human Rights in the 21st Century'. Champagne will deliver the keynote address which will highlight the importance of the multilateral system in defending and promoting universal human rights.
The Alliance for Multilateralism is an informal alliance created by Canada, France, and Germany, consisting of nations who share a respect for a rules-based international order and who value global cooperation for tackling the most pressing issues facing the world. Its first official event was held in September of 2019 at the UN General Assembly.
