Palais des Nations

This event is an opportunity to discuss the role of the Global South in multilateralism and the vision of many nations that were sidelined during the creation of the structures of global cooperation that emerged after the Second World War. Nowadays, the Global South is teeming with initiatives for a more equitable and inclusive multilateralism. This debate will offer different perspectives on how global governance may evolve to meet the new challenges, such as climate change and rising inequalities. This Library Talk is part of the celebration of “100 Years of Multilateralism in Geneva (1920-2020)”, reflecting on the multilateralism of the future.

The event will feature two high-profile academics, Glenda Sluga, University of Sydney, with her research on nationalism and internationalism, and Sandrine Kott, University of Geneva, with her work on economic inequality brought about by globalization.

A discussion with:

  • Glenda Sluga, Professor of International History, University of Sydney
  • Sandrine Kott, Professor of Modern European History, University of Geneva
  • Permanent Representative to the United Nations Office and other international organizations in Geneva - Ambassador H.E. Mr. Alaa Youssef.
