We attract some of the most experienced and academically qualified students from all over the world. They share their expertise and discuss pressing concerns in the fields of international humanitarian law, human rights protection, international criminal law and transitional justice.
In order to make educational opportunities accessible to all, a good proportion of our students receive a partial or full scholarship. This allows talented young people with limited means to study at the Geneva Academy.
As we are a joint centre of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies and the University of Geneva, our students are registered as students of both institutions and therefore benefit from their services, including access to sports and cultural activities, careers advice and language courses.
In this interview, Diana Cristina Corredor Gil tells us about the programme, what she plans to do after and life in Geneva.
Jean-Paul Nizigiyimana tells about his background, the programme and what it will bring to his career.
One of the highlights of the programme is the phenomenal insights provided by the stellar panel of professors and human rights experts who encourage innovative thinking around this developing field of transitional justice, coupled with the diversity of opinion from within the class itself. The student body consists of authentic and passionate viewpoints from multiple jurisdictions, which I find particularly intriguing.
