pdf Geneva

By Florian Bergamin and Milène Hauri

This report focuses on the practice of the City of Geneva as a center of multilateralism and presents its different facets and evolution. It thereby looks at the internationality of the City, which is often referred to as “la Genève internationale”. The report illustrates which role Geneva plays as a location for international organisations and other actors of the international community. Geneva does not only host international actors but is itself a member of various international city networks. Based on its roles as a host and player in city networks, the City of Geneva uses its capacities to connect various actors of the international community to discuss and advance the cause of cities.
