[REPOST]Adapting to a rapidly changing international environment – Challenges and opportunities as seen from OECD December 5, 2023

Guest Speaker Seminar , On-campus

While a degree of change is always present in the international environment, over the past few years the pace of such change has accelerated dramatically. This happens not only because of the COVID-19 pandemic and its serious impact in almost every domain, but also as a consequence of the intensification of geopolitical competition, while economic as well as social woes (economic inequality, inflation, mass migration, population ageing, etc.) are deepening. One the other hand however, new technologies and the tireless commitment of countless individuals and organizations are in the process of shaping new opportunities. Dr. Ingrid Barnsley will navigate this complex landscape as seen from the vantage point of OECD, simultaneously providing advice to young talents on how to build a career in an international organisation.
