When Trade and Peace Young Leaders Meet
On campus, people from the economics/trade and peace/security disciplines do not mix naturally. This trend continues as they start their careers in their respective fields. One of the goals of the Trade for Peace (T4P) Programme is to break down the silos between the disciplines by bringing them into a conversation.
In this 3rd episode of the youth series: "When Trade and Peace Young Leaders Meet", Ms. Tamara Persaud from the WTO and Ms. Medea Segantini from the Peacebuilding Initiative at the Geneva Graduate Institute come together to discuss the challenges and opportunities in building bridges between the trade and peace communities. By sharing their experiences, they highlight the importance of fostering dialogue between different disciplines, and also the crucial role that youth can play in using trade integration to achieve sustainable peace.
Join our Trade for Peace Future Leaders, Tamara and Medea, as they discuss how youth from different disciplines can work hand in hand to build economic growth, enhance food security and achieve inclusive sustainable peace.
