On October 30-31st 2017, the project applicants and senior researchers gathered for the first time at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva to discuss our research plans for the first phase of the project (2017-20). The main objective was to discuss each work package’s research plan in order to develop a shared language across disciplines, set commonly understood goals, and establish ethical guidelines. We took this opportunity to record short interviews with some of the attendees.
