Public Events

Every year the Graduate Institute hosts over two hundred public events, advancing public understanding of major global challenges, building awareness of the Institute’s activities and mission, and developing Maison de la Paix as International Geneva’s main hub for intellectual exchange. 
Through conferences, lectures, panel discussions and film screenings, Institute experts debate international issues with world-class speakers from the public-, not-for-profit and private sector. Many of these lively, interactive events are filmed and broadcast live to a wide global audience.
