She probably never imagined having to face a crisis of such magnitude. A little over a month after taking office, the new rector of the University of Geneva (Unige) Audrey Leuba is facing the occupation of the Uni Mail building by pro-Palestinian students since Tuesday. In the background until now, she reacts for the first time and details the vast process of reflection that Unige has begun with the constitution of a scientific committee responsible for examining the role of universities in the public debate.

Positioning in the face of armed conflicts, such as that in Gaza, is at the heart of the discussions. While Zurich has evacuated its students manu militari and Lausanne has created a commission responsible for analyzing collaborations with Israeli universities, Audrey Leuba defends a broader approach which is part of the long term.
