2021 Prize-winning Master's Dissertations

Since 2020, the Vahabzadeh Foundation has funded the publication of several master’s dissertations written by Geneva Graduate Institute students. 

The dissertations are selected by Institute faculty members and are recognised during the end-of-year Graduation Ceremonies. 

The papers are fully in line with the Institute’s core principles, those of independent and critical thinking, diversity of themes and approaches, engagement and excellence, with the aim of promoting peace, equity and sustainability.

The following dissertations were all published in the Graduate Institute's ePapers/eCahiers de l'Institut; this generous gift from the Foundation supports other Swiss institutions, like the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).
