July 05, 2023
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
U.56 Linklaters Lecture Room

No Latin American state is a permanent member of the UN Security Council. However, the region is entitled to two seats as non-permanent members. Currently, Brazil and Ecuador hold these seats. Therefore, we will talk to Diego Fernando Morejón Pazmiño (Ambassador of Ecuador) and Daniel Leitao (Officer at Brazilian Embassy Berlin) about their role and influence in the Security Council.

No Latin American country is a permanent member of the Security Council, but the region is entitled to two seats as non-permanent members. Brazil and Ecuador currently hold these seats. Therefore, we want to talk with high representatives of these countries about the role and influence of the Latin American states within the United Nations, especially the UN Security Council.


Guests will be the Ambassador to Germany and former Permanent Representative of Ecuador to the United Nations, Diego Fernando Morejón Pazmiño (for scheduling reasons probably digitally) and the Head of the Political, Cultural, Consular and Administrative Section of the Brazilian Embassy in Berlin, Daniel Leitao. They will be in conversation with Sofía Vaca and Andrés Gonzáles from POLITIKUM Ecuador and POLITIKUM Deutschland e.V.


We will take a look at the current global political challenges in the Security Council and what positions Latin American states are taking in this regard, but also look at issues that affect the region itself.
