The creation of the League of Nations in 1919 marked both the beginning of modern multilateralism and the rise of international Geneva. 100 years later, around 40 international organisations, the permanent missions of 179 countries, and hundreds of NGOs are working together from Geneva to build a safer, more just, and prosperous world.
The event, organised by the University of Geneva in partnership with the Swiss Federation, the Republic and State of Geneva, the City of Geneva, the UN Office at Geneva, and the Fondation pour Genève, marks 100 years of multilateralism in Geneva and will take place on 16 September at Uni Bastions in Geneva.
In an increasingly interdependent world, international co-operation is ever more necessary. Only multilateral responses will make it possible to address the global challenges our societies are facing. The debates will focus on questions revolving around: Who are the actors and what are the current and future decision-making processes? What is Geneva's role in this evolving context?
