Centres and Programmes
The task of the Institute’s Centres and Programmes is to contribute to the analysis of current global issues drawing on the intellectual resources of International Geneva, and to disseminate the results of the research in a format useful to international actors through publications, roundtables and executive education courses.
The centre is dedicated to research in the interrelated areas of international finance, development economics, and financial history. It was created in partnership with the Pictet foundation and situates the Graduate Institute at the forefront of this forward-looking field of study.
CIES focuses on the social and economic issues relating to international environmental problems. It brings together political, economic and legal perspectives on these issues, and operates several important ongoing activities: the Geneva Dialogues on International Environmental Problems; the Seminar Series on the International Environment; and the Geneva Conference on the Global Environment.
CTEI is the Graduate Institute's centre of excellence for research on international trade. The Centre brings together the research activities of eminent professors of economics, law and political science in the areas of trade, economic integration and globalisation.
The CCDP is the Graduate Institute’s focal point for research in the areas of conflict analysis, peacebuilding, and the complex relationships between security and development. Its research projects focus on the factors and actors that are implicated in the production and reproduction of violence within and between societies and states, as well as on policies and practices to reduce violence and insecurity and enhance development and peacebuilding initiatives at the international, state, and local levels.
This programme focuses on the interface between foreign policy, economics, development and health. It examines the characteristics and mechanisms that define successful global health diplomacy and governance.
This programme is devoted to the interdisciplinary study of population movements and aims at producing cutting-edge research and expertise on the causes and impacts of migration. Its primary focus is on movements linked to armed conflict, generalised violence, persecution and ecological disasters.
Providing a forum for scholars of governance and international organisations to interact with practitioners from the policy world, this programme analyzes governance arrangements across a variety of issues. Its work is focused around three dynamic activities: a visitors programme; two seminar series; and research projects.
The Programme on Gender and Global Change (PGGC) is the Graduate Institute's programme dedicated to the creation and dissemination of knowledge on gender in development and international relations. Its research, training, and outreach activities focus on the transformations of gender resulting from processes of globalisation and development and on gender politics in a globally-connected world.
