Why does multilateralism matter to young people? And how do we create inclusive and diverse participation of young people in multilateral efforts? In this episode, Natalie Alexander poses these questions and many more to Alicia Joho as a part of our #KnowledgeRising series.

Alicia Joho is a student studying a Dual Master's degree in International Relations, Human Rights and Humanitarian Action at the London School of Economics and Sciences Po, a former Swiss youth delegate to the United Nations, Communications Director at STEAR and an intern at the UN's gender unit of the Executive Office of the Secretary-General. 

Tune in to this conversation about diversity in youth voice, accounts of how young people are already shaping the future of multilateralism and getting beyond "token" representation.

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. Professor O’Malley also talks of her current research on the invisible history of the UN and the Global South.
