Our 2017 Annual Report is out! It provides a look into our research and educational activities.
2017 has been an intense and busy year for the Geneva Academy with:
Through our distinctive mix of education, research, platforms and convening power, we continued to disseminate legal knowledge, inform policy recommendations, support practitioners, and provide a critical and scholarly forum to discuss and debate topical issues in international humanitarian law, human rights, international criminal law and transitional justice.
In the framework of our LLM in IHL and Human Rights, students pleaded during the entire day of 24 April 2021 for Israel and for Palestine arguing that the side they represent has respected IHL while the adverse side has violated IHL.
Joshua Niyo received a one-year Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) Doc.Mobility grant to spend a year at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Law as Visiting Researcher.
Join us for our open house to learn more about this part-time programme designed professionals, meet staff, students and alumni, and discuss career opportunities.
