Podcast #8 | Ye-Min Wu & Rebecca Webber Gaudiosi on Diplomacy and Multilateralism During & After COVID
The Hague Journal of Diplomacy is delighted to announce it will be starting its own podcast series! The series will be aimed at bringing the themes of the journal’s research off the page, and onto the discussion table. Each episode will feature a guest who will share their insights and personal experience within their practice of, or research on diplomacy.
In the first episode of the new year, our host, Ilen Madhavji, builds on Episode 7 and the Journal's "Diplomacy After COVID" Forum with insights from two guests with practical experience within the world of diplomacy during COVID. Ye-Min Wu, the Deputy Permanent Representative of Singapore to the World Trade Organisation, and Rebecca Webber Gaudiosi, former representative of the US at the UN, current academic, and diplomatic trainer, touch on the pandemic's influence on multilateralism, decision-making at the highest level, and the importance of interpersonal relationships. As co-authors of "Negotiating at the United Nations: A Practitioner's Guide", our two guests walk the bridge between diplomatic practice and theory and, alongside Ilen, explore what we can take with us from this unprecedented era.
