We just set up a Geneva Academy Alumni Group on LinkedIn!
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 will be able to:
‘This group is meant to be a space for our alumni to start a discussion, share information about work, discuss challenging questions, offer advice, exchange and connect with peers’ underline Dany Diogo, Coordinator of Master Programmes at the Geneva Academy.
‘We hope to create a strong, close-knit community of alumni and are open ideas and initiatives as we work to develop and strengthen this network’ adds Nathalie Mivelaz Tirabosco, Communication Officer at the Geneva Academy.
You can click here to join, and begin connecting with your fellow alumni today!
In this interview, Owiso Owiso, currently enrolled in our Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law, tells us about the programme and life in Geneva.
A Geneva Academy team will participate in the 2017 Nuremberg Moot Court, which will take place on 26-29 July 2017. It will be one of the 42 teams coming from 27 countries.
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.
This course focuses on the specific issues that arise in times of armed conflict regarding the respect, protection and fulfilment of human rights. It addresses key issues like the applicability of human rights in times of armed conflict; the possibilities of restricting human rights under systems of limitations and derogations; and the extraterritorial application of human rights law.
