A partnership with academia

Building knowledge for trade and development

Video and multimedia

The Vi delivers the latest economic thinking from Geneva directly to the screens of the membership by developing audio-visual learning materials based on presentations by international experts from UNCTAD and other international organizations.
Some members use the materials to enrich and upgrade their lectures, while others play the videos in class to encourage student debate on current economic issues.
Since 2008, the Vi has developed more than 70 multimedia teaching resources featuring Geneva-based international experts and Vi academics.
