The Think Tank Hub Geneva, founded in April 2014, is an initiative undertaken by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) in collaboration with the think tank foraus – Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy. The hub aims to create a dynamic and innovative platform for think tanks specialized in various fields.
What we offer
The Think Tank Hub provides two fully equipped working spaces as well as conference facilities free of charge to think tanks from around the world who are, looking for temporary office space in Geneva. The offices are conveniently located in the building of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in the heart of the UN district. The welcome desk assists guests in finding accommodation in Geneva and provides general support throughout their stay. Depending on the availability of office space, visiting think tanks can schedule a stay lasting up to several weeks and/ or plan tailor-made events.
Geneva hosts a unique wealth of international organizations, institutional networks and expertise that are inspired by a culture of dialogue and cooperation. The city houses the European Headquarters of the United Nations, 34 international organizations (of a total of 40 based in Switzerland) and some 400 NGOs. Together with the 174 countries represented in Geneva through a Permanent Mission to the UN, International Geneva employs about 30’000 people. The city also welcomes every year some 3’000 heads of state and government as well as ministers, and around 2’700 conferences. This concentration of stakeholders and conferences in a single city is unique and gives Geneva a leading role in global governance. The key to successfully addressing the increasingly complex global challenges is to work together across national, institutional and intellectual boundaries.
