On 20 November 2018, the GSCP hosted a VIP lunch in honour of Dr Mohamed ElBaradei, former Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) from 1997 to 2009, and winner of the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize. Dr ElBaradei shared with the guests his experience and lessons learned from his career, in particular in dealing with the cases of Iraq, Iran, and North Korea. He stressed the importance of international dialogue and mutual respect. He identified insecurity and inequality as the main reasons behind today’s crises, fuelled by power politics, the danger of nuclear war, persistence of poverty and hunger as well as human rights violations.

 L’idée que la Suisse, pays neutre, dépositaire des Conventions de Genève, ait pu chercher à développer une bombe atomique, peut apparaître insolite. Et pourtant, pendant la Guerre froide, la Confédération a effectivement lancé un programme militaire secret de recherches nucléaires. La conférence met en lumière les raisons principales pour lesquelles la Suisse a cherché à s’équiper de cette arme, les motifs qui l’ont finalement incitée à signer le Traité sur la non-prolifération des armes nucléaires (TNP), puis contraste le développement suisse de l’époque avec celui, contemporain, des pays proliférants.

MOSCOW, OCTOBER 27, 2014. PIR PRESS – “For me, as a graduate of Geneva Centre for Security Policy, it is a big honor to present this award – PIR Center’s globe – in nomination “For Educating the New Generation in the Area of Nonproliferation” to the representatives of the center.  GCSP is an international foundation, which, in 1995 was established by the canton of Geneva and eleven states from across the world, including the Russian Federation. Today forty-five states participate. I am convinced that this high evaluation of GCSP activity demonstrates the demand for such approaches to the security issues”, – Timur Kyrabaev, Second Secretary, General Secretariat, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.
