Clinical work is an essential part of the programme.
It exposes students to contemporary transitional justice issues and provides them with the necessary skills to work in the field.
Throughout the year, experts on transitional justice deliver lectures on key topics related to the daily work of practitioners. Lectures are complemented by seminars, during which students are asked to analyse and discuss situations in specific countries, such as Sri Lanka and Colombia.
In this interview, Emilie Di Grazia, currently enrolled in our Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law, tells us about the programme, teaching, life in Geneva and what she plans to do after.
The Transitional Justice Spring School 2018 aims to address the roles of memory and culture in transitional justice processes through an interdisciplinary, comprehensively structured high-quality one-week programme.
Our Rule of Law in Armed Conflicts (RULAC) online portal features updated entries on the armed conflicts taking place in Iraq, Libya, Syria, South Sudan, Turkey and Yemen. These integrate recent developments like the Turkish offensive in Afrin, Israel’s largest scale aerial attacks inside Syria, and the divisions and infightings in Yemen.
The programme is structured around five modules that cover central theoretical and practical issues in the fields of transitional justice, human rights and the rule of law.
The Transitional Justice Spring School is a special one-week course, open to external participants, that discusses cutting-edge issues in transitional justice
