The following email regarding the new training program was recently circulated on the AdHoc_IDC listserv.

Dear colleagues and friends

The University of Zurich in collaboration with the University of Geneva offers new Programmes for Advanced Studies in International Organisations starting in September 2008. A brief summary can be found below, detailed information is available on our website:


Please share this information with students and interested colleagues and practitioners.

The MAS International Organisations programme is divided into three parts:

In the general part, students will familiarise themselves with the governing principles of public international law, international politics and economics and will deepen their knowledge in the law of international organisations. Different structures such as the international financial architecture, special mechanisms, and current problems of the most important international organisations will be discussed. This part of the programme will lay the foundations for the specialisation courses and allow the participants to engage in a knowledgeable dialogue with leading experts in the field.

In a second part, students may specialise in a specific area according to their own interests and needs.

The third part consists of individual research and the writing of a diploma thesis.

Specialisation courses with Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS)

In order to meet the needs of practitioners already working in International Organisations or who are going to do so in the near future, we offer all submodules of the specialisation part as certificate courses. Each submodule consists of different lectures and will be completed by an exam.

Successful candidates will receive a “Certificate of Advanced Studies” (CAS) in the respective field.

All courses are taught in English and are taking place in Zurich and Geneva.

With best wishes,

Christine Kaufmann

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
