THE CERAH

CERAH Governance

CERAH was created in its present form in 2008 by an agreement between the University of Geneva and the Graduate Institute.

The Supervisory Committee

This is the general supervisory organ of CERAH. The Rector of the University and the Director of the IHEID sit on the Committee. The Committee’s main tasks are to:

  • Nominate the president of the CERAH Board of Directors on the basis of a recommendation from the board;
  • Monitor the application of the strategy proposed by the board, and ensure that it falls within the framework of the general strategy of the University and the IHEID;
  • Approve the annual budget and accounts in addition to the annual report.

The Board of Directors

The strategic governing body of CERAH is the Board of Directors. It is composed of representatives from the University of Geneva, the IHEID and several humanitarian organisations. In addition, two eminent individuals are co-opted to serve on the board. Its tasks are as follows:

  • Define CERAH's strategy;
  • Identify, orient and ensure the implementation and internal oversight of teaching, research and other activities in order to achieve the Centre's objectives;
  • Develop and transmit course regulations to the competent authorities and oversee their application;
  • Deal with conflicts involving students through a Mediation Commission established within the Board.
