Applying to our programmes – LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights (LLM) and Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (MTJ) – and moving to Geneva to study at the Geneva Academy is an important decision and many interrogations can arise in relation to this process:
To respond to these many questions, we organize online Q&A information sessions for prospective students interested in our LLM and MTJ that allow prospective students to exchange with our Student Office.
‘There are no silly questions and these sessions precisely aim at both presenting our programmes and hearing from prospective students. We very much appreciate these exchanges that allow us to clarify our application process and one’s journey from the submission of an application to the enrolment in our programmes’ explains our Head of Education Dr Clotilde Pégorier.
Upcoming information sessions will take place from 13:30 to 14:30 (Geneva time, CET) on the following dates:
Prior registration is required to attend one of these sessions.

Our Research Fellow Dr Eugénie Duss answers our questions related to this update that follows the attacks carried out by Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Israel’s subsequent Iron Sword operation.
Panelists will address the relevance of the case for armed conflict classification, rebel governance, the protection of cultural property in armed conflicts, and the nexus requirement.
This training course will delve into the means and mechanisms through which national actors can best coordinate their human rights monitoring and implementation efforts, enabling them to strategically navigate the UN human rights system and use the various mechanisms available in their day-to-day work.
This training course will examine how the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights have been utilized to advance the concept of business respect for human rights throughout the UN system, the impact of the Guiding Principles on other international organizations, as well as the impact of standards and guidance developed by these different bodies.
The Geneva Human Rights Platform collaborates with a series of actors to reflect on the implementation of international human rights norms at the local level and propose solutions to improve uptake of recommendations and decisions taken by Geneva-based human rights bodies at the local level.
To unpack the challenges raised by artificial intelligence, this project will target two emerging and under-researched areas: digital military technologies and neurotechnology.
