Master student in International and Development Studies (MINT) at the Geneva Graduate Institute, Marie Holch discuses her experience moderating the fifth Geneva Gender Debate. The debate was hosted by the Institute in partnership with the International Gender Champions on 5 March 2024 as part of the Institute's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Initiative, and tackled the substantial gap between women’s particularly high stake in environmental conservation and their ability to act on it, due to their significant underrepresentation in institutions forming environmental policy.


Dr. Achim Wennmann has been appointed Professor of Practice in the Interdisciplinary Programme at the Institute, holding the inaugural Nagulendran Chair in Peace Mediation with effect from 1st April, 2024.
"The Chair comes at a very important moment in which the peace mediation community must ask itself if it can step up and raise its public voice in defense of the pathways to peace, or risk being side-lined to a political periphery. There is a lot to do and I would like to continue the walk through the mountain range of peacemaking with the many new and old friends and colleagues."
This will be the first Chair in peace mediation in Switzerland, made possible by John Nagulendran and the Nagulendran Philanthropy Alliance.

How do Palestinians and Israelis perceive and experience the ongoing war?
What past events in their collective histories are relevant here, and how can they act on those perceptions and experiences? What, then, are the war's implications on Palestinians' and Israelis' politics and ideas about future of their conflict?
How coherent are those implications? Finally, what are the war's regional and global dimensions?
What are the United States' interests and constraints in the war, and how might one explain the Biden administration's approach and shifts within it?
Our Lunch Briefing on "The Gaza War: Regional and Global Dimensions" with Professor Cyrus Schayegh will address these questions.

Our Story

The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies is an institution of research and higher education dedicated to the study of world affairs, with a particular emphasis on the cross-cutting fields of international relations and development issues.

The Institute was founded further to the establishment of the League of Nations in 1927. It was the first institution in the world entirely dedicated to the study of international affairs. In order to better address the world’s global challenges, it later reinforced its positioning by combining the studies of international relations and development.

Through our core activities, we aim to promote international cooperation and make a contribution to the progress of developing societies. More broadly, we endeavour to develop creative thinking on the major challenges of our time, foster global responsibility and advance respect for diversity.

We are a cosmopolitan community located in the heart of Geneva, an international city and a centre of global governance. By intensely engaging with international organisations, NGO’s, governments and multinational companies, we participate in global discussions and prepare future policy-makers to lead tomorrow’s world.
