Our activities include detailing past conferences or workshops from SDSA, describing the audience’s response and impressions during cultural visits organised by the association, interviewing high-profile people from the international community in Geneva or from the diplomatic world, or analysing the latest events of international geopolitics through written articles with a neutral political point of view. This is the mission of the Journalism Department within the Swiss Diplomacy Student Association. Furthermore, the Department actively collaborates with the Webmaster and Community Manager Departments to make its articles available on the website and on social media

Aloïs Alric 

“Currently in my 2nd year of the Russia-Central Europe Master’s degree at the Global Studies Institute, I joined the SDSA in the spring semester of 2022. I first started in the Culture & Institutions department, participating in the organisation of conferences on different themes as well as organising cultural visits aimed at making our international members discover Swiss heritage. Passionate about the fields of information and International Relations, I had the opportunity to become responsible of the Journalism Department. By encouraging associative investment and initiative, I hope that members will be able to exercise their editorial skills and acquire new ones in order to produce quality articles for our association.”


Yannis Bonnet 

“By joining the SDSA, I wished to take part in activities that are concrete, that are fruitful both on the professional and social level, to the extent that I myself can contribute. As a jurist who is eager to learn, a literature lover, and passionate MAREM student, being part of the Journalism Department appeared to me as something obvious. Writing about International Relations and sharing my knowledge and analysis constitutes a great opportunity which I believe will have positive impact on my future career. Moreover, sharing and learning from other equally passionate members makes this role enjoyable and stimulating, putting devotion and personal involvement on a pedestal in my vision of the SDSA.”




Roland de Pury 

“Geneva is a space for international cooperation, and I have grown up here with the intention of being part of its cosmopolitan environment. By joining the SDSA, I wanted to get closer to a sphere related to diplomacy and cooperation, fields in which I would like to work. Interested in history and global geopolitics, I thought it would be relevant for me to be a part of the Journalism Department and to assist with the publication of high quality articles.” Being part of this association is for me an occasion to meet and work with students on projects closely related to the professional world. The SDSA works to popularise a field that may sometimes be perceived as elitist and inaccessible.”



Marie Durussel 

“Currently studying International Relations in Geneva, I am passionate about foreign languages and diplomacy. Being a multicultural person, I joined the SDSA because it is a big family which allows its members to work in teams on various projects. The Journalism Department gives its members numerous skills such as open-mindedness, willingness to listen and the ability to take initiative.”




Aline Leutwiler 

“A strong belief in diplomacy’s neccessity and efficacy brought me to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations and to join the SDSA. I not only want to keep up to date with current events, but to also actively contribute to the writing within the Journalism Department. I have already worked in the Economics and Politics section of the Blick newspasper. Currently, I also work as a freelance journalist for Aerotelegraph and for a few small publications.”



Matteo Esclapes 

“The SDSA and its Journalism Department boast a wide variety of intellectual thought. Being member offers a constant stimulation, especially thanks to its community which is as enlightening as it is eclectic. As for the Journalism Department, its ambitious projects and high quality partnerships constitute precious contributions to my curriculum. The requirement of professionalism nurtures a true virtuous dynamic in me. I would add that in journalism, stakes are high and if “to misname things is to add to the misfortune of the world”, “it is our duty to do our job in an ethical and committed way.”


Sveva Poggi 

“My name is Sveva Poggi, I’m 19 and I’m a student from Ticino studying International Relations at the University of Geneva.
I attended the Lycée de Lugano 1 (from 2018 to 2022), where I obtained my Maturité in modern languages and where I discovered my great passion for politics and current affairs, as well as for writing.”




András Kovács 

“Currently a Bachelor’s student in International Relations with a passion for the world of diplomacy and foreign affairs, I joined the SDSA in the Autumn 2022 semester. The SDSA has enabled me to bring a practical side to my studies thanks to the many events it offers, as well as creating a bridge between myself and the professional world by taking full advantage of the opportunities in international Geneva. Given my interests, I was quickly attracted to the Journalism department, where I can acquire enriching writing skills, share my knowledge on subjects I’m passionate about, and constantly discover new and exciting aspects and issues of International Relations.”
