MEIG Programme

The MEIG Programme, organised by the University of Geneva in cooperation with the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG), combines the academic excellence of the University of Geneva, the Centre d’études juridiques européennes and the Global Studies Institute with the expertise of practitioners from diverse international organisations and bodies based in Geneva and Brussels. The programme lasts 10months (from September to July).

The MEIG is structured in 10 thematic and methodological modules followed by an end-of-study project. After two core modules that tackle the functioning of the United Nations system and European Union institutions, the MEIG covers a wide set of thematic fields such as human rights and migration; peace, security, and humanitarian affairs; digital governance; international trade and development; health and environment; climate change as well as the public-private partnership for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The whole programme is taught in English.
