This webinar will feature presentations of several key actors analyzing the current challenges which are facing International Geneva both at the strategic and operational levels. Is Geneva’s multilateral ecosystem in danger? Can the current technological solutions provide a reliable solution for the numerous international meeting normally held in Geneva? How will evolve diplomatic and multilateral practices if they stop relying primarily on human interactions?
