126 heartbeats bringing international flair to Geneva; 126 inspiring life journeys representing almost the full complement of nationalities present in this great city. This book celebrates 100 years since the first meeting of the League of Nations in Geneva and is a tribute to multilateralism and to Geneva’s civil society. This is a presentation of 126 distinct and diverse  cultural stories selected by the author – indeed, the city of Geneva has links to the four corners of the Earth. It is a city of peace, the capital of human rights, a place of welcome, opportunity and dialog where anything is possible. Geneva is above all a place that challenges humanity to realize that it has the means to reinvent itself.

After the release of his autobiographical novel, Au Bonheur de Yaya (The Happiness of Yaya) – which deals in particular with emigration – Zahi Haddad returns here to the core of his studies: international relations. His studies at the University of Geneva and  Columbia University in New York inspired this book’s exploration into how international cultural environments shape human beings. Author, entrepreneur and blogger, Zahi Haddad has focused his expertise and empathy to present 126 fascinating human portraits  – 126 heartbeats – drawn from eighteen months of research, interviews and meetings, creating unique profiles of these fascinating personalities and their contribution to the international character of Geneva.
