, -

Maison de la paix, Geneva Graduate Institute

The Institute is proud to host the inaugural event that will showcase the excellent work of the Institute's Applied Research Projects students, in particular their capacities to engage on complex challenges, to generate research findings of policy and practical relevance, while demonstrating the central role of the Institute as a node for intergenerational exchange and learning and as an incubator of applied research and practice.

The ARP students have pride of place at the Geneva Graduate Institute. A unique pedagogical experience where small groups of graduate students work with partners from International Geneva, ARPs allow students to conduct research that responds to today’s global challenges while having a real world impact. 

This year, the ARP Final Presentations are coming home to the Maison de la Paix: the event will feature presentations, a roundtable, and interactive thematic booths where students will be able to showcase their work and engage substantively and on a one-on-one basis with the public on their research topics.
