A new Lab for Science in Diplomacy in Geneva
ETH Zurich and UNIGE have established an interdisciplinary unit dedicated to science in diplomacy in Geneva to develop and make the best use of the new technologies. The two institutions are strengthening the academic contribution to bring science and diplomacy closer together and thus contribute to the development of International Geneva. This lab foresees to bring scientific insights and methods into diplomatic, international conflict resolution and help address the global challenges which are faced by societies. Here, new technologies offer scientists unexplored avenues for solving complex problems with quantitative methods. This also applies to the field of diplomacy, where methodologies have remained essentially qualitative, they aim at improving governance and respond effectively to global challenges such as health, politics or climate change.
