Description: The 2014 edition of the SASS centered on three significant themes: Accountability and Transparency, Social Policies, and Democracy and Nation Branding. Each panel featured approximately 10 presentations by PhD students or professors, encouraging multilevel academic discussions to gather new insights regarding each participant's research. Additionally, enriching field trips were organized, including an excursion to Bern with a visit to the Federal Palace and another to the UN in Geneva. These experiences not only provided valuable insights but also enhanced the overall academic exchange and engagement among participants.
