The United Nations in Geneva – Diplomacy from AI to Global Public Health and ClimateDialogue
Geneva, Switzerland Summer II, 2024
The Dialogue aims to provide students with unique access opportunities to see how negotiations and world politics occur, and how the United Nations tackles the hardest issues affecting humanity. This year, the Dialogue will be exploring the role of new technologies in world politics, most prominently, Artificial Intelligence (AI).This is in line with the launch of Professor Denise Garcia’s new book The AI Military Race, with Oxford University Press.
It started in 2007 by Professor Denise Garcia with the aim of exposing students to the practice and real life of diplomacy and negotiation of key world politics issues at the highest level that occur in the city of Geneva, capital of humanitarian diplomacy. The academic goals are the examination of pressing issues of world politics, including disarmament, arms control, international humanitarian law, and human rights law, and international security in general. A typical day includes engagement with the local community of international diplomats, locally-posted United Nations personnel, researchers, and other negotiators, academics, and non-governmental organizations, as well as advocacy groups.
Geneva is where two-thirds of all United Nations activities take place. The Dialogue aims to provide students with unique access opportunities to see how negotiations and world politics occur, to see the world’s capital of diplomacy, humanitarian action and global governance. We visit at least four Nobel Peace Laureate organizations and people. We hike the Alps on Sundays. The United Nations Dialogue offers possibilities for interacting and networking for future professional possibilities.
We meet inspiring people who are making the world a better place.
