Academic Platform Switzerland UN (APSUN)

PROMOTING DIALOGUE BETWEEN THE United Nations AND Swiss universities

APSUN aims at reinforcing partnership between academia and international organisations. In 2012, the Platform Secretariat is hosted at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva and is coordinated by a Council of professors specialised in the study of international organisations. APSUN members come from academic and policy-making worlds and civil society. APSUN is sponsored by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs.
