The "Maison de la paix"
The "Maison de la paix" will be built on land situated between Chemin Rigot and the railway lines. At its heart will be a library, auditoriums and seminar rooms, and a cafeteria. The offices will be positioned in a manner which facilitates interaction of people and ideas within the Institute as well as with partner institutions.
Indeed, the "Maison de la paix" will also house as tenants, three international centres supported by the Confederation: the Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF), the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) and the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD).
Thanks to the «Maison de la paix», the Institute will gain an extra 12,000m2 which, when added to the premises of Villa Barton and the Rue Rothschild, will double its current surface area.
