The Rising Role of Youth in Multilateralism with Maria Isabelle Wieser

The Rising Role of Youth in Multilateralism with Maria Isabelle Wieser

October 15, 2021

Maria Isabelle WieserHow should the UN involve young people more? How can young people benefit from mentorship? And are young people content with the pace of global governance?
 
In this episode, Maria Isabelle Wieser, the former Deputy Director of Foraus and former Head of the Think Tank Hub joined the #NextPagePod for a discussion about the role of youth in multilateralism, barriers to diversity for young voices and how to best meaningfully engage youth in the decisions of today.
 
Foraus is a Swiss think tank that advocates for constructive foreign policy and informative dialogue. They provide a platform for young people to access and contribute to a foreign policy outside of the current political party system and publish scientific-based policy recommendations. Currently, there are over 120 volunteers across 12 different thematic groups and 9 regional groups with the two central hubs located in Geneva and Zurich. 
 
In discussion with the Director of the UN Library & Archives Geneva, Francesco Pisano, Maria Isabelle explores her experiences navigating the foreign policy scene in Geneva from being bombarded by meetings in her first year to managing a young team throughout a pandemic. She also discusses the current limitations for young people to access international organizations and what needs to be done to best engage young people beyond surface-level meetings.

The Crossroads of Multiculturalism & Multilateralism with Ambassador Federico Villegas of Argentina

The Crossroads of Multiculturalism & Multilateralism with Ambassador Federico Villegas of Argentina

October 1, 2021

Image of Ambassador Federico Villegas.

How did Argentina’s multicultural society shape how they approach multilateralism? And how did Argentina contribute to the human rights law we know today?

 

In this episode, Ambassador Federico Villegas, the Permanent Representative of Argentina to the United Nations Office at Geneva joined the #NextPagePod for a discussion around the history of Argentina and how diversity has shaped the country today.

 

Before being appointed to Geneva, Mr. Villegas has had an expansive career in foreign services as a career diplomat and lawyer. Appointed as the Argentinian Ambassador to Mozambique in 2016, he was then appointed as the Director-General of Human Rights at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Argentina from 2012 to 2016 and as a Representative to the Southern Common Market in Uruguay from 2008 to 2011.

 

In discussion with Director of the UN Library & Archives Geneva, Francesco Pisano, Mr. Villegas talks about his experience as a UN Disarmament fellow, Argentina’s relations with neighbouring America and how immigration in Argentina created a turning point for society. He also talked about military coups, and how periods in the country’s history led to a new human rights wave dedicated to the enforced disappearances of persons.

Media, Truth and Power at the League of Nations with Carolyn Biltoft

Media, Truth and Power at the League of Nations with Carolyn Biltoft

September 17, 2021

Social_media_grapics8rlsu.jpgIn this episode, Professor Carolyn Biltoft considers how you do global intellectual history and the need for analysis, as she talks about her book, A Violent Peace: Media, Truth and Power at the League of Nations (2021, University of Chicago Press).

Looking through the League of Nations, a longed-for project of international peace and cooperation, Biltoft is interested in examining what is this thing called mass media. In her critique of the information system, she looks at how it transforms our relation to power and interacts with our fears, anxieties, and our longing for certainty.

We talk about language, money and the press and uncover stories from the time of the League of Nations about Esperanto, typewriters, time-capsules, pneumatic tubes, money, counterfeiting, branding and advertising. We also talk about the tragedy of the suicide of Stefan Lux during the Assembly on 3 July 1936 to bring attention to the horrors occurring in Nazi Germany.

Carolyn Biltoft encourages us to hold open what we can never know, to be curious and to keep asking.

Cooperative Security amid multilateral doubt with Thomas Greminger

Cooperative Security amid multilateral doubt with Thomas Greminger

August 20, 2021

Copy_of_Joho_4_7656d.png"Cooperative security is about conceptualizing security together" - Ambassador Thomas Greminger

Episode 58 of the #NextPagePod addresses the paradoxical reality that while we face a growing number of systemic security challenges that can only be solved collaboratively, such as climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic, there is also an increasing amount of unilateral policies and political will globally.

Our Director Francesco Pisano welcomed Thomas Greminger to the studio to talk about what cooperative security means and where it can be beneficially applied. As a security expert, the current Director of the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) and former Secretary-General of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), he argues that collaboration is the best-proven way to fight our current security challenges and prepare against future security risks.

Women in Tech: why it matters with Doreen Bogdan-Martin

August 6, 2021

Copy_of_Joho_1_aih7g.jpgThis episode of the #NextPagePod brings you a timely conversation between the Director of the ITU Telecommunication Development Bureau, Doreen Bogdan-Martin and our Director Francesco Pisano about women in tech.

As the first woman in ITU’s history to hold a top elected management position, Doreen Bogdan-Martin speaks about her experience as a female leader in the male-dominated tech sector, why the industry can be discouraging for women, why the industry perpetuates gender bias, and tech ethics.

Doreen Bogdan-Martin asserts that putting more emphasis on people-centered technology is key to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and helping people live better lives. She also enlightens us on how the Bureau makes substantial efforts to encourage young people’s participation in the sector, not only as beneficiaries but as creators and changemakers.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
