Fully funded to Geneva, Switzerland, the idea is to gather contributions that are both theoretically grounded and offer pragmatic solutions to a relevant international development problem stemming from an interdisciplinary collaboration between three to five enrolled master students from anywhere in the world.

About the Program

Hosted by the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies and funded by Swiss Ambassador Jenö Staehelin, it is a project which aims to encourage interdisciplinary problem-solving analysis among master students on advancing human development within the scope of a relevant topic. This year, students are invited to develop analysis-based proposals on “The Challenges of Poverty Reduction”.

What to Expect

Teams of 3-5 master students must submit an 8,000 words proposal which:

  • identifies a challenge related to poverty reduction;
  • constructs an interdisciplinary analysis on how it affects different aspects of development in a specific (but transposable) context;
  • proposes innovation at the policy, practice, process or technology levels turning the challenge into development opportunity.
