For me as a practitioner, the Master in Transitional Justice not only allowed me to acquire a more solid legal background in criminal justice, theories of transitional justice or international human rights law, but it also provided me with a more holistic view on transitional justice and new perspectives I can use daily in my work.
Core courses are mandatory and are spread over the two semesters. They cover central theoretical and practical issues in the fields of transitional justice, human rights and the rule of law.
Internships allow our students to acquire first-hand professional experience via internships with leading actors and agencies in the field of transitional justice.
Our campus spans from Geneva’s international area to downtown Geneva with its vibrant cultural life.
Our Master in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law is organized around intimate learning communities enabling close interaction between students and professors.
