Through its geographical location, and the fact that the Grand Duchy is a country where the influences of many countries meet, Luxembourg has found its role not only regionally, but also on the European and global levels.
Member of a large number of organisations and international institutions, Luxembourg has always been committed to multilateralism and international cooperation and sees itself as mediator and defender of agreements and treaties.
In 2013-2014, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg was a non-permanent member of the Security Council of the UN.
The Grand Duchy also seeks to further strengthen its development cooperation policy and take into account the specific interests of developing countries.
In 2009, the Luxembourg government reached the goal it had set itself in the 2000s to reach an official development assistance (ODA) of 1% of the gross national income (GNI) for the first time.
In 2013, Luxembourg was part of the group of countries being most active in the field of Official Development Assistance, attributing 1% of its GNI to this end.
