The Geneva Academy alumni community is made up of over 700 members who work worldwide in the humanitarian and human rights fields, in international organizations, international courts and tribunals, NGOs, governments and academic institutions.
Through formal events and informal contact, our alumni form a dynamic network of professionals, one of the lasting benefits of an education at the Geneva Academy.
This group serves as a community space for those who have graduated from the Geneva Academy or from its predecessor, the University Centre for International Humanitarian Law (CUDIH), to engage in meaningful and intentional networking.
As members of this group, our alumni can connect with each other, share information regarding job opportunities and internships, plan informal meetings and networking events in their area, discuss topical issues, share articles and experiences, and more!
To celebrate our 10th anniversary, more than 100 alumni gathered together on 27 May 2017 for a day of academic talks, meeting with professors and old friends, barbecue in the park and evening dinner.
Several years have passed and I am now surrounded by former Geneva Academy students anywhere I go to work. I often come back to Geneva: walking through the streets, meeting my friends and seeing current LLM students full of hope and expectations makes me somewhat emotional, particularly because I know that they will meet those expectations.
Our objective is to produce graduates who will be leaders in the humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice fields.
Our students have the opportunity to be taught by leading academics in the fields of international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
The Geneva Academy is a leading education and research institution in international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
Our teaching enables specialists to apply legal frameworks to complex situations and challenging processes.
