A campus in the heart of International Geneva
- The Campus project in brief (leaflet)
The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, a leading graduate school dedicated to the study of world affairs, able to own real estate and hold property investments, is currently building an ambitious project, the Campus de la paix (Campus of Peace).
The campus will extend from the United Nations headquarters to the shores of Lake Geneva and will span two public parks, the magnificent Mon-Repos Park as well as the Rigot Park, which will be redesigned. It will consist of a series of buildings, some already built (Edgar et Danièle de Picciotto Student House) and others currently under construction (Maison de la paix, Portail des nations), others renovated (Villa Barton and Villa Moynier) or to be designated for other uses (Rothschild building). The campus will transform Geneva’s Secheron area notably by the addition of two key buildings: the Edgar and Danièle Picciotto Student House, which was inaugurated in September 2012, and the Maison de la paix, the future headquarters of the Institute, which will be completed by the end of 2013.
Thanks to the Campus de la paix, the Institute will be located in the heart of Geneva’s district of international organisations and will strengthen its interaction with numerous private and public institutions active on the international stage, especially those based in Geneva and the Lake Geneva region.
