In the second semester, students have the opportunity to go on a study trip to learn about leading institutions and organizations active in the field of transitional justice and the history of transitional justice.
MTJ students have the opportunity to organize a study trip, with a small contribution from the Geneva Academy.
In past academic years, our MTJ students had the opportunity to travel to the Balkans (Kosovo), Poland and Nuremberg. They often recall these trips as one of the best experiences of the programme, which allowed them to put into practice what they have learned in class.
Students of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and Human Rights (LLM) and MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (MTJ) spent a week in the Balkans – Belgrade, Sarajevo and Srebrenica – where they met experts and institutions who work in the fields of IHL, human rights and transitional justice.
Students of our MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law (MTJ) spent, as part of the programme’s annual study trip, four days in Kosovo where they met with a wide range of experts and institutions involved in post-conflict reconstruction and the rule of law.

Students of our MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law spent three days in Poland to look into transitional justice issues.
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.
