The Council of the Socialist International meets this week in New York

The Council of the Socialist International will meet Tuesday and Wednesday at the UN headquarters in New York, with an agenda that includes debates on strengthening multilateralism and protecting democracy.

The meeting will be attended by, among others, the Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres, who presided over this group between 1999 and 2005.

Guterres will speak at a session entitled “Strengthening Multilateralism for Peace”, followed by two further debates on the values ​​and policies of socialist parties and on the defense of democracy where it is under threat.

In addition, according to the agenda, the meeting will elect four new Vice-Presidents of the Socialist International, chaired by the former Greek Prime Minister, Yorgos Papandréu.

Among others, it is also expected to attend the meetings of the leader of the Spanish socialists, Pedro Sánchez, or the Dominican Chancellor, Miguel Vargas.
The Council of the Socialist International meets twice a year and is one of the main organs of the organization with the Congress, which is quoted every four years.

The most recent Congress took place last March in Cartagena, Colombia, where social democratic and Labor parties around the world tried to claim themselves as a response to isolationism and populism.
