Greetings from the Graduate Institute Geneva!
The Graduate Institute Geneva (IHEID) was created in 1927 at the time of the League of Nations. It was then the first academic institution in the world entirely devoted to the study of international affairs. Its vocation is to analyze and stimulate critical thinking in the fields of international relations and development issues through its teaching (master and Ph.D. programs), research, executive education, and public events.
We are excited to announce that IHEID has adapted its Summer Programmes to an online format allowing students from all over the world to gain insight into International Affairs, the United Nations, as it marks its 75th anniversary and Global Challenges from wherever they are. IHEID invites Universitas Gadjah Mada students to explore key issues in the contemporary world by attending lectures and workshops. Each week is directed by a renowned faculty member and practitioners from International Organisations in Geneva.
Course participants can obtain 2 ECTS for each week.
The following programs are open to anyone with a demonstrated interest in global affairs.

As the United Nations marks its 75th anniversary in 2020, IHEID is excited to offer a special edition of its Summer Programme on the United Nations at 75: Managing Global Trends and Challenges. This intensive program provides an introduction to the United Nations system, its core mission, and how it works with other stakeholders to manage global trends and challenges. In this edition IHEID will also take stock of the current and future state of the United Nations and global cooperation in the areas of peace and security, migration and displacement, health risks and governance, climate and the environment, digital cooperation, and cyber-security, and sustainable development. Students will discuss and analyze key issues with professors from the Graduate Institute and specialists from the United Nations system, civil society, and government representatives.
