New Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva

Foreword

One hundred years ago, the seeds for global cooperation were planted with the signing of an international peace treaty. Establishing itself along the shores of Lake Geneva, the League of Nations began to lay lasting groundwork for multilateral diplomacy and to develop methods for peacemaking.

In these changing and uncertain times, we must emphasize that multilateralism is not experiencing a crisis, but a transition in global order.

Tatiana Valovaya,

Under-Secretary-General
Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva
Secretary-General of the Conference on Disarmament

100 Women

The 100Elles* project on gender and equality highlights the role of  100 women, people with marginalized orientations or gender identities and intersex people, who have made positive contributions to Geneva.
The project is organized by l’Escouade, a Geneva-based feminist organization, in partnership with the City of Geneva.
