Department Overview  :


The Webmaster Department maintains the association’s website, ensures that it is always up-to-date, and manages any issues that may arise. The Webmaster collaborates closely with the Journalism Department and with the broader association as a whole. Other duties include benchmarking articles and encouraging interaction between readers and members of the association.


A word from the Department’s chief Jean-François Giovannangeli : 





“Passionate about international relationships and the role of diplomacy, it was with great enthusiasm that I joined the SDSA in September 2020. It was an exceptional opportunity for me, given that I was lucky enough to meet people equally passionate about this field and motivate to promote the association. This helped me deepen my understanding of international topics and issues.”








Luisa Baumann : 

“Inspiring conferences, educational workshop, and a variation of enriching events in the context of diplomacy: the “Swiss Diplomacy Student Association” offers all of this and a lot more. Since my arrival in Geneva in 2020 to start my bachelor’s degree in international relations, my interest for global questions and diplomacy grew even bigger. It was therefore only natural for me to join the “Swiss Diplomacy Student Association” in fall 2021. I particularly appreciate the practical approach this association brings, the ideal complement to the theoretical approach of the university courses. To me this means one step closer to the professional world. As a member of the webmaster department, I mainly take care of the German translation of the website and of various other publications of the association.”






Gaia Jamie Lee Buffone 


“I am Gaia Jamie Lee Buffone, a 20-year-old Italo-American currently enrolled in my last year of BSc in International Politics and Government at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy. I have been selected by my University to participate in the University Exchange Abroad Program and I chose the Université de Genève in Geneva, Switzerland as my destination. Thus, since I am studying in Geneva I wanted to get involved in the community possibly combining my passion for diplomacy with my willingness to meet new people to share opinions and ideas. I wanted to observe diplomacy in action, understand the roles and the dynamics and get involved. The SDSA gifted me with the privilege of joining them that is not only increasing my wealth of knowledge and giving me the exposure I need to advance my career, but also providing me with the opportunity to combine my theoretical studies with a more practical approach to make a significant impact on the world. Specifically, I am in charge of the translation of the entire SDSA website and of all the articles and flash news from English and French to Italian. Being part of this team is an honor and a pleasure!”
