Might sound like a fantasy. Or maybe it sounds a little dystopic. But Alexandre Maaza stopped by to make a pretty convincing argument for a future where we may need to change our perceptions of work, salaries and everything that goes with it.
Two GISA committees unite to bring you a very special podcast this Monday, November 30 at 18:30 CET, as part of the Gender and Development month at the Graduate Institute.
The Professional Development Committee and the Geneva Intl. podcast initiative present a live recording of a 30 minute interview with the Institute’s director Marie-Laure Salles. Discussions will cover her views on Gender and Development, and more.
Some fifty doctoral students graduate each year from the Graduate Institute. If pursuing doctoral studies always implies strategic choices with regards to the research topics, the path towards a thesis also remains a journey bespeckled with experiences and encounters. Because each path towards a PhD is unique, this podcast series is dedicated to the vagaries of doctoral students’ lives in Geneva.
Paroma Ghose defended her PhD thesis in June 2020. In the first episode, she tells us about how she studied the lyrics of songs by rappers in France between 1981 and 2012, in order to write a history of the “Other”, or what she termed the “Fifth Estate”, in France.

Rather than a grouping of sovereign states, the League of Nations, the precursor organisation to the United Nations, admitted several colonies and Dominions as member-states. Perhaps the most unusual addition to the League was that of British India, that was described as an ‘anomaly among anomalies’.
In today’s podcast, we will discuss under what terms colonies could be member-states of an international organisation, as well as why an Empire would want to admit them. And finally, we will cover the precedents that the inclusion of India caused at the League, and how they left their footprint in the structure of the UN.
Thomas Gidney discusses his PhD thesis on how colonies could become admitted as member-states of international organisations, and the role they play in British imperial policy.
Introducing a new podcast series by the Macro-Development Research Initiative, from the Graduate Institute in Geneva. “Let’s put it on the table” will discuss development-related topics that are not receiving enough attention.
Our guest for this episode is Alejandro Castro, one of the founding members of Club Macro, the Club de Macroeconomía UCV, the student analysis group of macroeconomic policy at Universidad Central de Venezuela. Club Macro was the seed that later shaped the idea for our international initiative: The Macro-Development Research Initiative.
