 NOTE: SIT will make every effort to maintain its programs as described. To respond to emergent situations, like COVID-19, SIT may have to modify programs. Visit the SIT website for more details.

Immerse yourself in the world of multilateral diplomacy and learn the art of conflict resolution and prevention in an international arena.
 

WHY STUDY IN SWITZERLAND?

Build the skills and knowledge required for multilateral diplomacy at the center of the action: Geneva, where you’ll learn from top academics and experts at research institutes, United Nations agencies and other nongovernmental organizations.

It’s a great opportunity to build your international network and make contacts with top experts on the use of multilateral diplomacy in conflict resolution and prevention, international humanitarian law, managing complex emergencies, and migration.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Learn the practicalities of multilateral diplomacy from international experts.
  • Get practical experience for academic and professional development.
