Global Perspectives - Switzerland
Geneva is a city in Switzerland that lies at the southern tip of Lac Léman (Lake Geneva). Surrounded by the Alps and Jura mountains, the city has views of dramatic Mont Blanc. Headquarters of Europe’s United Nations and the Red Cross, it’s a global hub for diplomacy and banking. We’ll visit a few of the most important sites in this city to understand how they became and why they are still a global leader for international relations.
Geneva, Switzerland was also chosen to host CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, to a large extent because of its neutrality and its safeguards against the misappropriation of scientific research results for military purposes.
While in Switzerland, we’ll also visit Basel, a lovely university city that is known as the most multicultural city in Switzerland. During the experience we’ll explore the historical old town as well as the university district.
