UN Geneva Seminars Series

The Information Service of the United Nations Office at Geneva organizes an annual seminar series to deepen the academic world's knowledge on the activities of the United Nations and on its priorities and challenges in the years to come.

Two seminars are organized every year and held at the Palais des Nations, over two days. They mainly target students and representatives of universities and research institutes.

Each seminar promotes a specific theme and comprises a series of lectures given by a panel of experts with various backgrounds (Representatives of NGOs, academies or administrations; experts from UN Agencies or independent experts) who will make presentations and then debate the issues with the participants.

The presentations and discussions may be held in English or French.

Following the seminar, a certificate of participation is awarded to students.
