Sitting on the cusp of war in Ukraine. Disunity on climate change. Human trafficking. Water shortages.

The list of international crises seems only to be growing. Where is the leadership that can rally us to solve these global crises?

It seems sadly lacking, but the qualities for this new kind of leader are well studied and defined at the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP). In this episode, we'll speak with GCSP's Ambassador Thomas Greminger and Peter Cunningham about their organisation's mission, the state of global leadership today, and the type of leadership it will take to steer us through these crises.

Ambassador Thomas Greminger is the Director of the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP). He formerly served as the Secretary General of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). Ambassador Greminger holds a PhD in history from the University of Zurich. He is Lieutenant Colonel GS (company and battalion commander of the Swiss Armed Forces. He has authored numerous publications on military history, conflict management, peacekeeping, development, and human rights.

Peter Cunningham is Head of Leadership at GCSP, and co-founder of the Geneva Leadership Alliance, a network advancing the understanding and practice of leadership for the advancing of peace and security worldwide. Peter constantly seeks new, diverse, and innovative ways to bridge the study of leadership with the practice of leading, especially at the international level -- working across cultural, geo-graphical, political and organisational divides.
