International Geneva: Faces of Peace 

This initiative was a collaboration between the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform and the University of Geneva’s Masters Programme in Journalism and Communication to produce personality portraits from a selection of Geneva-based individual actors, working directly within – or relevant to – the peacebuilding field.

The initiative looks to present Geneva as a key hub for peacebuilding with its rich variety of organizations, many of which are in some way involved in the field of building peace.
