The Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict (60 ECTS credits, equivalent to a LLM) is one of the few part-time, innovative and intellectually challenging programmes in international humanitarian law and human rights offered today.
Designed for professionals with demanding jobs and responsibilities, it provides strong theoretical and practical knowledge and responds to the growing need for specialists to address complex humanitarian challenges.

Three students of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights are embarking on a bicycle trip to Solferino to raise funds for a scholarship for next year’s LLM class. They need your support!
We look forward to welcoming students, their friends, families and our professors at the 2018 Graduation Ceremony.
In this opening lecture of the academic year, Elisabeth Decrey Warner will share her experience, as Co-Founder and Former Executive President of Geneva Call, of promoting respect of international humanitarian law by armed non-state actors.
The course will focus on five particular categories of challenges of international criminal justice: legal or normative, investigative and evidential, political, the defence, and the legacy.
This course discusses the extent to which states may limit and/or derogate from their international human rights obligations in order to prevent and counter terrorism and thus protect persons under their jurisdiction.
