Geneva, Switzerland

Security beside a statue of Tiber, a gift from the Italian government to the International Labour Organisation, the former residents of the building now housing the WTO, during a visit by United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres there to addressing a special session of the WTO's General Council.

The World Trade Organisation has 164 members, and in theory, negotiates and regulates global trade. It is, however, in crisis: New multi-lateral trade negotiations have been stalled for years, while it's principle dispute settlement body, the 'crown jewels' of the WTO and the global trading system, is almost completely blocked.
