Foundation History

The Foundation was established after the premature death of Professor Pierre du Bois in 2007. An expert of European integration and contemporary international relations, Pierre du Bois was a Professor of International History and Politics at the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva. He had hoped to create this foundation himself, but was not able to carry out his wish: too busy living life, he was not aware how little time he had left… The Pierre du Bois Foundation seeks to perpetuate his passionate, probing, and multidimensional, both challenging and very human, approach to research.
