Event description

Description


The WTO Accessions Division has been exploring trade from the angle of peace. It is widely agreed that trade is essential for a country’s development. However, the ways in which trade can be strategized for (re-) building a nation – particularly fragile states – has not been fully explored. The aim of the proposed session is to raise awareness on the benefits of trade for establishing peace via a dialogue and engaging platform, where Chief Negotiators from countries that have undergone conflict can share their experiences and critically examine the ways in which WTO Accessions can help foster peace. The session will be held at Palais des Nations (Room XI), on November 9th 2018 from 1:00 - 2.15 PM.

INDICO - UNOG will open the registration on Monday 24 September 2018

Registration will be open till the end of the Geneva Peace Week, however we encourage participants to register as early as possible.

When participants register online, they first receive an email saying that their registration is pending approval. Once it is approved, they receive another email informing that their request has been approved or rejected. Participants must bring this confirmation (printed or electronic) in order to receive a badge.

As Geneva Peace Week is a public meeting, UNOG will review and approve registration requests in the system. It will not be possible for UNOG to provide the organizers with the breakdown of participation for every event taking place in room VIII and Room V.

Collection of badges

Badges can be received from 8 a.m. onwards on 7 November 2018 at the Pregny Gate of the Palais des Nations. No bulky luggage/items are permitted. Participants will be required to bring a photo ID along with the Indico confirmation of registration. Please note that no parking is provided and no car access will be possible.

Visa

No visa attestation letters will be provided by UNOG and/or Geneva Peacebuilding Platform.
