The Geneva Academy offers a unique opportunity to acquire an in-depth knowledge of the main international law branches that are relevant for the protection of individuals in armed conflict and other situations of violence. The strong academic level of the students, the diversity of cultures represented in the programme and the richness of in-class discussions on contemporary legal issues makes teaching at the Geneva Academy a true pleasure.
