Graduate Institute (IHEID) By 2030, one in three people on the planet is projected to be living in an urban area. The global trend of rapid urbanisation provides a unique opportunity for cities to take on a preeminent role in the provision and coordination of health services for its inhabitants. As urban populations grow, local and city administrations are increasingly engaging and building alliances with national, regional and global actors, thereby occupying a new political space. City diplomacy for health constitutes a promising avenue for improving the overall health and wellbeing of city dwellers across the globe.
In this executive course, you will have the opportunity, among others, to: • Explore the challenges, complexity and opportunities of city diplomacy for health; • Analyse the role of cities in health diplomacy through specific case-studies (e.g. SARS, air pollution, etc.); • Enhance negotiation skills through a differentiated analysis of actors and their interests as well as a course-tailored simulation exercise; • Discuss multi-level governance and its relation to cities, particularly considering the role of mayors in promoting healthy cities; and • Develop a network of health diplomats and benefit from peer learning.
This course can also be recognised as part of the Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Global Health Diplomacy.
