The GIAN Concludes its 2005 Tendering Procedure

The Geneva International Academic Network (RUIG-GIAN) has approved, in the framework of its fifth Annual Tendering Procedure, eight projects presented by multidisciplinary research teams. Researchers include professors from the University of Geneva, the Graduate Institute of International Studies (GIIS), the Graduate Institute of Development Studies (GIDS) and other universities, in collaboration with one or several international organisations. A total funding package of SFr 1.6 million is available for these projects.
The GIAN pursues its objective - to reinforce cooperation among institutions of higher education and international organisations - by financing and supporting research and training projects.
Each project approved by the GIAN, following appraisal by its Scientific Committee, falls within the purview of at least one of five thematic areas: sustainable development; social equity; globalisation and international commerce; intercultural relations and dialogue; humanitarian law and human rights.
The projects approved in 2005 concern the following topics:

The GIAN is pleased to note the participation of numerous international organisations and NGOs (ILO, IOM, IUCN, UNCTAD, UNECE, UNEP, UNIDIR, WHO, WWF, GIPRI among others) in the aforementioned projects. Several academic and research institutions from throughout the world are also implicated in GIAN-supported research projects.
