Geneva has built both a long tradition of hosting International Organizations and been at the heart of discussions on international relations. Indeed Geneva is the second duty station of the UN organization: among the thirty-eight structures composing the Secretariat (Departments, Offices, Conferences, Commissioners, etc.) about 10 are based in Geneva and gather approximately 3500 persons who work directly for UN Secretariat entities. Geneva is also known as the operational center of the UN system. It addresses humanitarian and human rights issues as well as other topics considered less political than the ones tackled in New York. Aside from UN entities, Geneva is also at the core of the multilateral system: 34 international organizations - a majority of them linked to the larger UN system, including ones among the largest of the system such as ILO or WHO – 350 NGOS and 175 countries are based, or represented in the Swiss city. A total of over 30’000 persons work and are integrated into what is called the International Geneva.
Furthermore Geneva also hosts some of the most famous academic institutes that concentrate their study on multilateral issues, such as the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (IHEID) and the University of Geneva.
The conferences take place on 18th and 19th of June 2018 in the evenings.
