A Decade of Global Impact: The GCSP's Journey at the Maison de la Paix

As the Geneva Centre for Security Policy approaches the 10-year anniversary of our presence at the Maison de la Paix, the “House of Peace”, we reflect on the significance of this milestone and the profound impact of our headquarters' location in the heart of Geneva - the capital of peace and diplomacy.

A Home for Global Thinkers

For the GCSP, the Maison de la Paix is not just our headquarters, it is a home where ideas flourish and initiatives take root. Over the past decade, GCSP has utilised this space to convene thought leaders, policymakers and practitioners, creating a dynamic environment for dialogue, research, and training in the realm of security and peace. From providing world-class education and training to empowering leaders with the skills necessary for effective conflict resolution, the GCSP has been a driving force behind positive change.

The Architecture of Peace

The Maison de la Paix, with its contemporary design and state-of-the-art facilities, is not merely a building, it is a symbol of unity and purpose. The architecture was intentionally designed to facilitate interaction and collaboration among various organisations and individuals working towards global peace and security. The building's co-location model has facilitated interdisciplinary collaboration, breaking down silos and enabling a holistic approach to addressing complex global challenges.

Looking Ahead

The challenges facing our world are ever-evolving, and the Maison de la Paix remains a steadfast symbol of hope and determination. The next decade promises new opportunities for innovation, collaboration, and impactful interventions, and the GCSP will be there to lead the way. Our global network of alumni, comprising leaders from diverse backgrounds, stands testament to the institute's enduring impact on shaping a more secure and cooperative world.
In the spirit of the Maison de la Paix, let us continue to build bridges, foster understanding, and work collectively towards a future where peace prevails. Here's to the next ten years of forging connections and advancing the cause of peace on a global scale.
