GGI welcomes the Spring Cohort of the Erasmus+ - Global Governance Institute Trainee Programme

12 Mar

The Global Governance Institute (GGI) is thrilled to welcome its spring cohort of Global Governance Trainees in Brussels. Funded with contributions from the European Union’s Erasmus+, the four new trainees will work with GGI’s Senior Analysts on a wide range of projects related to peace and security and global justice.

Alice Cerrato, Camilla Venturini, Romana Fedunyshyn and Giulia Muià have been selected from a pool of more than 30 applicants from across the European Union to spend the spring semester at the Global Governance Institute in Brussels.

During their traineeship, they will work on a GGI project for the European Parliament on the Strategic Partnerships in the context of the EU Strategic Compass, on the implications of increasing global tensions for EU-Africa relations, on revitalising Global Governance, on tackling human trafficking and on the role of AI in Higher Education.

As part of their traineeship, the four will be encouraged to attend high-level policy and think tank meetings in the Brussels policy realm, conduct interviews with senior officials and draft their own publications related to topics of their interest in the field of global governance. They will also receive training on networking and research skills and will be involved in the production of podcasts and webinars.
