Germany in the United Nations Security Council 2019-2020
On 8 June 2018, Germany was elected as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the 2019-20 term. Peace, justice, innovation, partnership - these are the things Germany wants to play in the United Nations.
The Crisis Response Centre of the Federal Foreign Office
The Duty Officers at the Crisis Response Centre ensure the Foreign Office can be reached 24 hours a day and keep the Minister and top officials informed of current developments.
Other important aspects of the Centre's work are providing early warning of crises as well as crisis prevention and management. It monitors developments that may escalate into crises and if necessary convenes a crisis task force, for whose organization and procedures it is likewise responsible. It is also responsible for coordinating cooperation with other ministries and international Partners.
