Exhibition: "100 Years of Multilateralism in Geneva"



The United Nations Office at Geneva collaborated with the Martin Bodmer Foundation and the International Committee of the Red Cross to bring three exhibitions to the city of Geneva in the framework of the Centenary of multilateralism.

Entitled “100 Years of Multilateralism in Geneva”, this exhibition presents unique documents from the UN archives, the UN system, and private collections. The exhibition explores the evolution of the multilateral system since the creation of the League of Nations to the work of the United Nations today.

It outlines the contours of multilateralism and highlights the exceptional role that Geneva plays on the international level, while revealing some of the little-known aspects of multilateral diplomacy. The documents exhibited invite visitors both to understand the place of multilateralism in the functioning of the contemporary international system and start thinking about its evolution and future.



The exhibition is organized in the framework of 100 Years of Multilateralism in Geneva celebrations that UN Geneva is organizing with partners in 2019 and 2020.
