The Estonian School of Diplomacy and The UN Association of Tampere visit UNU-WIDER
The Estonian School of Diplomacy visited UNU-WIDER as part of a study trip to Helsinki. The group included staff from various countries’ ministries — including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry for Education, and Ministry of Defence. The visit gave the students an opportunity to learn about the research that is currently underway at UNU-WIDER and what the institute is focusing on in the new work progamme. The session included a presentation on the SOUTHMOD project which provides researchers and policy makers around the world with a microsimulation model to test and measure the potential impacts and outcomes of prospective tax and benefit policies.
A cohort of the UN Association of Finland also visited UNU-WIDER to hear more about our research, and to learn about working for a UN agency, the roles and responsibilities, and employment opportunities at UNU-WIDER. The group was comprised of students enrolled at the University of Tampere in Political Science and International Relations, Development Studies and related courses.
