Bringing together International Geneva’s stakeholders
Diplomatic Club of Geneva

If Geneva can claim to be the world’s primary international cooperation center, it largely owes this status to the virtue of its diplomatic missions, international organizations, NGOs and multinational companies.

11 years ago, the Fondation pour Genève was entrusted by the Federal and Geneva authorities, as well as by the UNOG, with the task of developing the Diplomatic Club of Geneva in order to build bridges between governmental, private and academic actors of International Geneva.

In 2016, The Diplomatic Club of Geneva moved to the “Maison de la Paix setting up its own Secretariat. Chaired by former Ambassador of Switzerland Raymond Loretan it is managed by a committee composed of representatives of the Swiss Confederation, the Canton and the City of Geneva, the Fondation pour Genève, the University of Geneva, the Graduate Institute, the Fédération des Entreprises romandes, and representatives of the international diplomatic community.

The Fondation pour Genève contributes more than half of the Club’s operating budget.
