The Graduate Institute's research mission is to produce knowledge that fosters a better understanding of global problems. As a community of scholars in the academy we are committed to advancing insight and debate in the social sciences and humanities. As a community of publicly engaged scholars, we also seek to enrich policy debates at the international and local level, in particular those involving international actors.
This mission is carried out by our research centres and joint centres with the University of Geneva, who work in close collaboration with one another and with academic departments. The Institute also provides commissioned expertise and applied research through associated programmes.
