Futures of multilateralism – an applied research project on the challenge of transforming the global order
In this episode, three young researchers from the Graduate Institute in Geneva, Simfora Bangasimbo, Karim Achy, Sohini Chakrabarti talk about their applied research project on Futures of Multilateralism. The UN Office at Geneva and the Graduate Institute collaborate in several knowledge and research domains and this research project on futures of multilateralism was submitted by the Library & Archives and The Fab, the Institute’s innovation lab.
Francesco Pisano, Director of the Library & Archives, discusses with the graduate students as they explore what multilateralism may look like in the following 3 scenarios: a world of stable and cooperative geopolitics and open access technology; a world of volatile geopolitics and open access technology; and a world of volatile geopolitics and closed access technology. In the second part, the students move on to a stimulating discussion reflecting on their research.
