The Geneva Challenge 2022 International Contest for Graduate Students is now open for applications. The idea is to gather contributions that are both theoretically grounded and offer pragmatic solutions to a relevant international development problem stemming from an interdisciplinary collaboration between three to five enrolled master students from anywhere in the world. This year, students are asked to submit contributions that aim to offer solutions to The Challenges of Poverty Reduction.
