Geneva and International Organization

Including sessions in Geneva, Switzerland

Eckerd College is offering the course, “Geneva and International Organization” in the spring of 2010. This program provides a unique opportunity to examine the work of the affiliated agencies of the United Nations (UN) and the international community in Geneva, Switzerland.

The course will focus on three key themes: economic globalization, ecological balance, and human rights. We will examine the degree to which the global community has been able to cooperate and achieve positive results in these three issue areas. We will visit and engage leading international civil servants working in these foremost international organizations on these critical issues and the grave challenges facing the global community. Potential solutions to some of the most pressing issues confronting humanity—from violent human rights abuses to global environmental degradation—are being debated in Geneva. We will confront these issues directly and analyze the success and/or failure of global functional cooperation through international organization.
