About Greg Raikes' Talk
Prime Minister Trudeau has promised that Canada is “back on the world stage” -  but what will that look like? In this Founder's Day talk, Greg will explore this theme, through his own experience as a Canadian working with the United Nations for more than ten years in Afghanistan, Timor-Leste, the UN Secretariat in New York, and in his current role with the UN Special Coordinator’s Office for the Middle East Peace Process.
