About The United Nations Graduate Study Programme

The United Nations is an intergovernmental organization whose stated purposes are to maintain international peace and security, develop friendly relations among nations, achieve international cooperation, and be a center for harmonizing the actions of nations.

The jubilee 61st Graduate Study Program will consist of lectures given by representatives of the United Nations, other international organizations and NGOs, visits to institutions, and working on group projects.

The first week of the Program will provide an overview of some of the main themes addressed by “International Geneva”, such as sustainable development, humanitarian action, disarmament, peace and security, trade, climate, health, gender equality, education, refugees and migrants.

In the second week, the focus will switch to human rights, part of the year-long initiative to mark the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
