I stayed at the Foraus Think Tank Hub in Geneva for three weeks in order to conduct interviews for a research project on the WTO’s Doha Development Agenda. The Think Tank Hub is extremely well located – just across the street from the WTO. Not only that; being based in Geneva allowed me to speak to a range of stakeholders from different country missions to the WTO. I also met representatives working on trade from several think tanks and universities. The empirical data I was able to gather will be very valuable for the next stage of the research project.
Moreover, being based at the Think Tank Hub made it possible for me to participate in other trade-related events taking place in Geneva. Most notable among them was the WTO Public Forum (27-29 September 2016) which gathers representatives from civil society, academia, business, the media, governments, parliamentarians and inter-governmental organizations to discuss the latest advancements in world trade.
Thanks again to the foraus team!
