We cooperate with academia in Geneva.

The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies is an institution of research and higher education dedicated to the study of world affairs, with a particular emphasis on the cross-cutting fields of international relations and development issues.

Located in the heart of international Geneva, the Institute is headquartered at Maison de la Paix, which hosts several organisations active in the fields of peace, international affairs and sustainable development, including Right Livelihood’s Geneva office.

We have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Graduate Institute, defining the basis of their cooperation in different fields involving the Laureates.

The library of the Graduate Institute is home to a collection of books by and about Right Livelihood Laureates. More than 300 titles are accessible already in this dedicated section at Maison de la Paix.
