The Center for International Dispute Settlement (CIDS) is a joint Center of the University of Geneva Law School and the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, led by Prof. Gabrielle Kaufmann-Kohler and Prof. Zachary Douglas.
Among other activities, the CIDS aims at building up an academic 'home' for PhD students working in the field of international dispute settlement. For that purpose, a series of doctoral seminars was launched in 2015 where a PhD candidate from any university working in international dispute settlement issues is offered the possibility of presenting her work before a group of PhD candidates and Professors working in closely related topics and methodologies.
The doctoral seminars take place in Geneva and consist of a presentation for about 30-40 minutes, followed by another 30 minutes of discussion, and a cocktail. The usual schedule goes from 18h to 20h.
Attendance is composed of PhD candidates and Professors mostly from Swiss universities, but also from abroad. The CIDS may cover the travel expenses in Switzerland for doctoral participants, both presenters and attendees, affiliated with a Swiss university.
