More focused attention is needed today to meet the challenges of transitional justice. Critical normative and practical thinking is required to properly grasp and address what is at stake in societies emerging from conflict and authoritarian rule.
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.
