Welcome to the Graduate Institute Library! We look forward to meeting you soon and helping you have the best possible student experience with us. Here are tips for a successful start.Continue reading “Get Started with the Library!”
Funding institutions such as the SNSF require researchers to fill a data management plan with their application. What is a data management plan (DMP), and how should you answer its questions? Find out here or during our live session on September 22.
Are you a teacher or a TA? Are you wondering whether you can copy and share articles or PDFs with your students? Our legal librarian Céline Vilmen tells you everything you need to know before distributing or uploading documents to your Moodle platform.
The Library has a rich collection of over 3500 DVDs related to international relations and development, and while DVD is not quite dead yet, we know not everyone has a drive on their laptop anymore.
To discover or rewatch documentaries and fiction films not available on streaming platforms, you can now borrow one of our new portable DVD players, which you can connect to your computer via USB.
They are available from the Loan service, and can be borrowed and kept like DVDs (short loan: 7 days, 5 automatic renewals).
Enjoy the show!

In recent times, US-Russia relations have deteriorated to what both sides acknowledge is an “all time low.” Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election and Putin’s continued support for the Assad regime in Syria have placed enormous strain on this historically tense and complex relationship.
In one of the first analyses of the evolving Trump-Putin relationship, leading scholar of Russian foreign policy Andrei P. Tsygankov challenges the dominant view that US-Russia relations have entered a new Cold War phase. Russia’s US strategy, he argues, can only be understood in the context of a changing international order. While America strives to preserve its global dominance, Russia-the weaker power-exploits its asymmetric capabilities and relations with non-Western allies to defend and promote its interests, and to avoid yielding to US pressures. Focusing on key areas of conflict and mutual convergence-from European security to China and the Middle East, as well as cyber, nuclear, and energy issues-Tsygankov paints a nuanced and unsentimental picture of two countries whose ties are likely to remain marked by suspicion and conflict for years to come.
