Seminar Series

The Global Governance Centre offers three seminar series.


Global Governance Colloquium Series

The Global Governance Colloquium series aims to build a denser research community by providing scholars of governance issues a platform to present and discuss works in progress across disciplinary boundaries. The colloquia take place bi-monthly on Mondays over lunchtime.

Consult our events page for upcoming colloquium.


International Geneva Luncheons


The Centre works closely with the United Nations Office in Geneva (UNOG) to co-organise up to two International Geneva Luncheons every semester with the support of the Canton and City of Geneva. The seminars bring together senior management at the UN with guest professors and Graduate Institute faculty to reflect on cutting edge ideas about institutions and governance emerging in current scholarly research.
