The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies created this Prize in tribute to Edgar de Picciotto and his family for their exceptionally generous support which has enabled the Institute to finance a considerable part of the Student House. The Prize is awarded every two years and is worth CHF 100,000. It is intended to reward an internationally renowned academic whose research has contributed to enhancing the understanding of global challenges and whose work has influenced policymakers. The Prize has previously been awarded to Amartya Sen, 1998 winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, and Saul Friedländer, Emeritus Professor of History at UCLA and winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction.

Dancing the Cuban dream

Geneva film-maker Eileen Hofer’s movie Horizontes about ballet in Havana must be one of the most poetic documentaries ever made. Through bewitching images, it follows the lives of three ballerinas at different stages of their careers, telling their story in moving detail. One of those dancers is Alicia Alonso, the now 95 year-old who defied her advancing blindness to become one of the greatest ballerinas in the world. Horizontes could not have been completed without the support of Union Bancaire Privée (UBP).
