The 61st edition of the Graduate Study Programme is set to unfold at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, commencing from Monday, 3 July, and concluding on Friday, 14 July 2023.

This immersive program will feature lectures delivered by representatives from the United Nations, as well as other international organizations and non-governmental organizations. Participants will partake in insightful visits to various institutions and collaborate on group projects.
