For the Campus de la paix, the Institute has reaped the benefits of private-public partnership. The public contributions (from the Swiss Confederation and the Canton of Geneva) have been complemented by a bank loan and donations from patrons and foundations that see the project as a necessary basis for the development of a high-level academic institution in the heart of one of the principal centres of world governance.
