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!
Professor Marco Sassòli has been appointed as the new Director of the Geneva Academy. He takes up this role following the retirement of Professor Robert Roth.
From 31 March to 8 April 2017, our LLM students went on a nine-day study trip to Belgrade and Kosovo where they met with a wide range of leading actors in the region working on international humanitarian law, human rights, international criminal law, transitional justice, and migration.
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.
We look forward to welcoming students, their friends, families and our professors at the 2018 Graduation Ceremony.
