56: Repenser les études internationales et du développement avec Marie-Laure Salles

July 23, 2021

Joho_3_6b4wd.pngPour l’épisode 56, nous sommes très heureux d’accueillir Marie-Laure Salles, qui nous parle des interactions complexes entre le monde  dès l’économie et la société et de la nécessité de former les jeunes autrement, si nous voulons « changer la culture du monde » et faire face aux enjeux du futur. 

Marie-Laure Salles est une sociologue et universitaire renommée qui est, depuis septembre 2020, la directrice de l’Institut des Hautes Études et du Développement (l’IHEID) à Genève. 

Dans cet épisode, Marie-Laure Salles partage sa vision sur la manière dont les étudiants doivent être préparé au monde de demain d’une manière radicalement différente de celle qui prévaut aujourd’hui.

L’épisode permet également de comprendre comment un plan d’action commun entre l’Organisation des Nations Unis à Genève et l’IHEID, qui partagent un lien historique, va permettre de concrétiser en partie de cette vision. Marie-Laure Salles insiste en particulier sur la nécessité de mettre en place des mécanismes qui permettront aux jeunes générations d’affirmer leurs idées auprès de l’ONU et de se faire entendre au sein de l’Organisation.

55: Neutrality and vulnerable states with Ambassador Nasir Andisha of Afghanistan

55: Neutrality and vulnerable states with Ambassador Nasir Andisha of Afghanistan

July 9, 2021

Joho_8_b38b6.pngWhat is neutrality and why it is beneficial for some states? How do geopolitical tensions influence Afghanistan's potential for permanent neutrality?

In episode 55 of the #NextPagePod, our director Francesco Pisano spoke to Dr Nasir A. Andisha, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Afghanistan to the UN in Geneva, about Afghanistan's periods of neutrality which have coincided with periods of stability and peace.

Dr Andisha is also the author of Neutrality and Vulnerable States, which analyses the concept and practice of neutrality from an academic and historical perspective. In this conversation, the ambassador also gave us his perspective of Afghanistan's future in light of the US's withdrawal of all its troops and how this can affect its prospects of regional neutrality.

54: L’histoire du multilatéralisme et des organisations internationales à Genève avec Olga Hidalgo-Weber

June 25, 2021

hidelgo_bif6k510.pngPour l’épisode 54, nous sommes heureux d’accueillir Olga Hidalgo-Weber pour parler de l’ouvrage publié sous sa direction et celle de Bernard Lescaze intitulé «100 ans de multilatéralisme à Genève. De la SdN à l’ONU », paru en 2020 aux éditions Suzanne Hurter.

Olga Hidalgo-Weber, en tant qu’historienne et chargée de cours à l’Université de Genève, nous communique sa passion pour l’histoire et partage avec nous son érudition et sa vision sur le multilatéralisme. Elle nous explique, en particulier, quelles sont les nouvelles approches développées dans le domaine de la recherche historique sur les organisations internationales. Elle nous illustre comment cet ouvrage collectif porte un regard nouveau sur la Société des Nations et le multilatéralisme en général. Elle s’exprime également sur la résilience du système multilatéral et sur certains acteurs emblématiques du multilatéralisme. Enfin, elle nous offre un court exposé sur l'institutionnalisation du multilatéralisme en prenant l’exemple du secrétariat international.

Cet épisode permet de mieux comprendre comment l'histoire du multilatéralisme peut se confondre avec l'histoire des organisations internationales.

The historian Professor Alanna O’Malley from Leiden University, joined us at The Next Page to tell us more about her work as Chair of United Nations Studies in Peace and Justice and to explore some of the themes in the cross-disciplinary volume she co-edited on The Institution of International Order, tracing the period from the 1920s to the 1970s and spanning the transition from the League of Nations to the United Nations. She discusses the history of internationalism and the dynamic, complex forces at play around these two organisations as global platforms.

50: Dr. Elizabeth Sáenz on the interconnectivity of the Sustainable Development Goals

50: Dr. Elizabeth Sáenz on the interconnectivity of the Sustainable Development Goals

April 30, 2021

Twitter_Banner_-_Ep_37bhxwp.pngDr. Elizabeth Sáenz joined The Next Page for a conversation on the interconnection between the Sustainable Development Goals. As a pediatrician and liaison officer for the United Nations Organization on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) at the WHO, Dr. Sáenz specializes in drug dependence treatment, with a special focus on prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation.  

Speaking on this issue from the perspective of the SDGs, Dr. Sáenz explores how quality education, gender equality and even decent work and economic growth are all intertwined within this context. She highlights the need for greater compassion and understanding, the role that everyone can play towards raising awareness, and the vastly multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary nature of the ongoing efforts in prevention and treatment. Additionally, she speaks on the unique but collaborative roles of the UNODC and the WHO in advancing the conversation on this topic, through the lens of justice and health.  

A fascinating conversation that shines a light on the interconnectedness of the Sustainable Development Goals, and the role that everyone can play, we hope this episode brings you new insights and perspectives.

49: Dr. Katharina Rietzler on recovering Women’s Thought in International Relations

April 16, 2021

E49_Banner7kb8v.png

In Episode 49 historian, author and researcher Katharina Rietzler joins Francesco Pisano to talk about her new book called Women's International Thought: A new history. Dr Rietzler co-wrote the book after her research revealed that numerous women in history have researched and published in the field of international public affairs but only a few were present in the documented history of international relations as a disciple and in international thought.  

Although the author pays tribute to otherwise marginalised female thinkers in the book, she also stressed the importance of not predetermining, romanticising and generalising women’s intersectional contributions purely on their gender. 

Tune in to hear this intriguing discussion about rethinking the patriarchal history of international relations by challenging existing paradigms through the recovery of female voices.

45: Dr. Filippa Lentzos on biological threats in the 21st century

February 19, 2021

Twitter_-_Banner_Ep_459d819.png

Last year, 2020, marked the 45th anniversary of the Biological Weapons Convention that was negotiated at the Palais des Nations in Geneva. It was the first multilateral disarmament treaty banning an entire category of weapons of mass destruction. It prohibits the development, production, acquisition, transfer, stockpiling and use of biological and toxin weapons. Last year also saw the outbreak of a major pandemic that humanity is grappling to bring under control.

In episode 45, we meet with Dr. Filippa Lentzos, who holds a joint appointment as Senior Research Fellow at the Department of War Studies and the Department of Global Health & Social Medicine at King’s College London, and who is also a regular participant as NGO Coordinator at meetings of the Biological Weapons Convention in Geneva. Dr. Lentzos explains more about her work and her book Biological Threats in the 21st Century, sharing her thoughts on multilateralism for security in this field, providing insights on how to prepare for and respond to outbreaks of disease, and giving us glimpses of emerging technologies. Underlying the conversation is the theme of the importance of moral frameworks.

43: Dr. Hope Elizabeth May on Bertha von Suttner and the power of positive history

January 26, 2021

Twitter_Banner_-_Ep_43_1_a24iq.png

This episode introduces a key figure in the 19th century peace movement: the Austrian writer, activist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Bertha von Suttner. Who was she, what did she work towards, and how does her contribution connect to our present day? Dr. Hope Elizabeth May, Professor of Philosophy and the Director of the Center for International Ethics at Central Michigan University, joins The Next Page to share more about Bertha and her current research as part of the Bertha von Suttner project. 

This episode is a companion to the event held on 26 January 2021 at the UN Library and Archives Geneva, Bertha von Suttner: A Woman Ahead of Her Time, where Dr. May and Colin Wells (Project Manager of the Total Digital Access to the League of Nations Archives), explore her role as an activist and political thinker, her influence on the establishment of the  first multilateral institutions, and her action in favor of international peace.  

In spite of her achievements, unthinkable for a woman of her time, many do not know about her work and life. This episode, as well as the online event, are designed as an introduction to her work and ideas. We hope you enjoy!
