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.

Episode 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.

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

Episode 49: Conversation – 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.

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

Episode 45: Conversation - 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.

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!

Épisode 40: Conversation - L’inter-socialité et le multilatéralisme du futur, selon Professeur Bertrand Badie

Épisode 40: Conversation - L’inter-socialité et le multilatéralisme du futur, selon Professeur Bertrand Badie

December 18, 2020

Twitter_Banner_-_Ep_40_FRE_b6wdh.png

Dans cet épisode de The Next Page, Blandine Blukacz-Louisfert, Cheffe de la Section de la Mémoire institutionnelle à la Bibliothèque&Archives des Nations Unies à Genève, accueille le professeur Bertrand Badie pour parler de son dernier livre Inter-socialités - Le monde n'est plus géopolitique

Professeur à Science Po Paris, le professeur Badie est un des spécialistes français des relations internationales les plus connus et reconnus. Auteur de nombreuses publications, ses domaines de recherches portent sur la sociologie des relations internationales, les droits de l'homme et le multilatéralisme. 

Dans ce podcast, le professeur Badie explique comment le concept d’« inter-socialité » peut nous permettre de mieux comprendre le monde dans lequel nous vivons aujourd’hui. En effet, en examinant les dynamiques du système international d’un point de vue inédit, cet épisode de The Next Page nous amène à réfléchir sur la relation entre le politique et le social, le rôle de la notion de puissance dans les relations internationales, la place de l’Etat dans un monde westphalien de plus en plus contesté, et les transformations provoquées par la mondialisation. 

Cet épisode est également l’occasion pour entendre le professeur Badie sur sa vision du multilatéralisme. Pour lui, le multilatéralisme du futur doit évoluer en s’inspirant de l’histoire, notamment de la notion de solidarité sociale internationale conceptualisée par Léon Bourgeois, un des pères fondateurs de la Société des Nations et lauréat du prix Nobel de la paix en 1920.

Episode 39: Conversation - Professor Kathryn Lavelle on Multilateralism as “Contrasts in Motion”

December 11, 2020

Twitter_Banner_-_Ep_39avcxb.png

In episode 39, we continue our exploration of multilateralism by looking at the challenges of multilateralism and discussing Professor Kathryn Lavelle’s new book on that topic.

Kathryn Lavelle is the Ellen and Dixon Long Professor in World Affairs at the Department of Political Affairs at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where she has worked for the past eighteen years. Professor Lavelle is a permanent member of the New York Council on Foreign Relations and is a global fellow of the Woodrow Wilson International Centre for Scholars in its Global Europe programme. She also serves as a member of the editorial review board of the UNCTAD journal Transnational Corporations.

In this conversation with Francesco Pisano, Director of the Library & Archives, Kathryn Lavelle takes us on a journey through her book The Challenges of Multilateralism. Starting with the historical context in which multilateralism emerged and the creation of major problem-solving organizations, she points to how the perception of multilateralism has changed over time. She highlights some of the challenges and the dynamic progress from which these arise, before they move on to discuss International Organizations and what the multilateralism may look like in the future.

Professor Lavelle’s book is an accessible read for anyone interested in global development, public health, the environment, trade, international finance, humanitarian law and security studies.
