The 2021 G2 Hackathon challenged students from all over the world to identify a global challenge and proposal a politically feasible, legally rigorous way to tackle it through the World Trade Organization. The students delivered. The 21 proposals below represent bold new ideas and innovative solutions. They span a broad gamut of topics from long-running WTO debates like fisheries subsidies and appellate body reform, and topical issues like Covid-19 relief and women's economic empowerment, through issues the WTO has never tackled like virtual water.
On behalf of the Graduate Institute, Georgetown University and the Geneva Trade Platform we thank all the participants for their outstanding submissions and encourage you to peruse them below. We hope you find them as impressive and thought provoking as our high level jury did.
