THE PALAIS DES NATIONS, SYMBOL OF GENEVA, CAPITAL OF PEACE

The League of Nations (LON) was founded after the First World War “to develop cooperation among nations and to guarantee them peace and security”. The League of Nations Secretariat was initially housed at Palais Wilson, while a new permanent headquarters was to be constructed on land donated by the City of Geneva.

 

The European headquarters of the United Nations is the second largest United Nations centre after the United Nations Headquarters in New York, have become the centre of world diplomacy. Under the dome of the “Human Rights and Alliance for Civilisations’ Room”, many secrets are shared.

 

On the Place des Nations, standing in front of the monumental ‘Broken Chair’, you are reminded of Geneva’s contribution to peace and freedom.
