Geneva Practicum in Human Rights


The Geneva practicum is organized by the program on International Organizations, Law and Diplomacy which combines legal, diplomatic, and social scientific approaches to the study of multilateralism. The program explores juridical, political, economic, and other dimensions of international organizations as they face the challenges of globalization and global governance. The theory and practice of contemporary international organizations, law and diplomacy is taught through courses, conferences, as well as experimental learning and substantive interactions with officials in international organizations in Geneva.
