Prejudice, discrimination, and the diversity challenge

Prejudice and discrimination are often causes of individuals’ suffering, social inequalities, and human conflicts in contemporary societies. Prejudice and discrimination are pervasive, difficult to counteract, and persisting even in unsuspected contexts and organizations.
This summer school brings together experts and students from different countries to examine the origins and the consequences of prejudice. Where does prejudice come from? How do prejudice and discrimination affect people’s achievements, performances, and well-being? How can institutions reduce prejudice? How do laws prevent prejudice and protect minorities? What are the advantages of the inclusion of minority groups in the labor market?
This summer school will address these questions through lectures from keynote speakers in social psychology.The social social-psychological analysis will be complemented by talks in law and economy, class discussion, and group presentations. It will focus on contemporary cases of prejudice based on various group memberships and stigmatizing attributes, such as race, religion, gender, sexuality, age, social class, disability, and unemployment.
This summer school is a unique opportunity to meet practitioners from different organizations in Geneva and to learn about implemented policies aiming to reduce discriminations and promote diversity in the workplace.
This summer school will introduce participants to:
  • the basic research and theories about stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination from the social, cognitive, and organizational psychological perspectives
  • laws protecting individuals from prejudice and discrimination in the workplace
  • the economic analysis of labor market discrimination
  • strategies and policies to prevent and reduce prejudice in the workplace

WIPO - University of Geneva Summer School on Intellectual Property

The University of Geneva, together with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), will organize a two-weeks WIPO-University of Geneva Summer School on Intellectual Property (June 26 to July 7). The Summer School takes place during the first week (June 26 to June 27) in the premises of the University of Geneva Law School, and during the second week (July 3 to July 7) at the WIPO headquarters. The Summer School is open to approximately 60 senior students (graduate and postgraduate students) and young professionals from any field of study or discipline (from law to economics).

The Summer School offers an invaluable education program in intellectual property (IP). Selected applicants will be notified one week after the registration deadline that shall be made online on the WIPO website (see below 5) except for applicants from the University of Geneva who can apply for a free participation (see tab Application).

The objective of the Summer School is to provide an opportunity for advanced students or young professionals to acquire deeper knowledge of IP, and to gain an appreciation of IP as a tool for economic, social, cultural and technological development and the role WIPO plays in the global administration of IP.

The Summer School program covers all main areas of IP (namely, patent law, trademarks, designs and copyright) through a pragmatic, interactive approach. Lecturers are intellectual property experts at WIPO, the University of Geneva, or other institutions.
