New partnership with IMD

Let’s unleash the power of ‘us’

, -

at the Auditorium A1, Maison de la Paix (Chemin Eugène-Rigot 2, 1202 Genève)

It is easy to feel powerless today. Record temperatures across Europe are an unavoidable sign of the climate emergency. Russia’s war in Ukraine is in its sixth month, with no end in sight, and significant economic disruptions around the world as a result.

Today’s challenges require nuanced understanding of geopolitics and great strategic leadership. As part of a new partnership to foster action in tackling the biggest issues of our day, IMD and the Graduate Institute are pleased to invite you to a discussion of the future of diplomacy in turbulent times.

We hope that you will be able to join fellow alumni and other members of our community on 29 August at the Institute in Geneva to explore the requirements of crisis management today.
