Cédric Dupont is Programme Director of the Executive Master in International Negotiation and Policy-Making, Professor of Political Science and Director of Executive Education at the Graduate Institute. He is a Senior Research Fellow of the Berkeley Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Study Center (BASC) at the University of California at Berkeley and an Associate Editor for Europe of the journal Business and Politics. He is a specialist of international political economy with a focus on trade and monetary integration processes and related governance issues, as well as in the analysis of strategic interactions between actors (with use of game theory).

His ongoing research projects focus on the one hand on the institutional design of pan-regional integration groupings (such as APEC and FTAA), and on the other hand on the working of the WTO as a political system, with specific analysis of the questions of legitimacy and efficiency. He also leads a collaborative project with NGOs in Geneva and Oxford University to advance research and policy dialogue on trade, global economic governance and developing countries.

Professor Dupont has significant experience teaching mid-career and senior professionals, both in our degree programmes and customised programmes in Executive Education, with clients ranging from public sector (Swiss Development and Cooperation Agency, national ministries of foreign affairs, etc) to multinationals and private foundations.
