About

InZone is a Center developed in partnership between the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting (FTI) and the Global Studies Institute (GSI) at the University of Geneva.

InZone is committed to the design, the development and scientific validation of innovative approaches to higher educatiion and multilingual communication in humanitarian emergencies, whether these are the result of armed conflict, a health emergency or a natural disaster. With 65 million children and youth affected by humanitarian emergencies and protracted crises, conflict-sensitive higher education models and innovative pedagogical approaches that respect humanitarian principles are needed to provide continuity to the education of youths in the midst of chaos, to restore a sense of normalcy amidst adversity, to act as a catalyst for peace-building and to help countries transform and rebuild or ‘build back better’ the institutions and systems destroyed during the emergency.
