We should have a far greater voice in global institutions.

”The Institute is proud to be an ALDRAP partner and to work together ” he affirms.

”Soon we'll connect our members with international organisations in ways you haven't even imagined yet and co-create an inclusive, non-discriminatory, non-hierarchical, and adaptable multi-level, inter-sector, multi-stakeholder model for legal practitioners and public diplomats to successfully represent the underrepresented at the global level, including through existing mechanisms, in particular at the United Nations, WBG, IMF, OECD level” he affirms.
