Applications for the Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict open at the beginning of May and close at the end of June.

 If you receive an offer, you cannot defer it to a later year. However, it is possible to reapply.

To teach International Humanitarian Law (IHL) at the Geneva Academy is a unique pleasure and challenge: nowhere else will you find so many brilliant young people from all around the world, keen to specialize in IHL and to work in this field; nowhere else will I be subject to so many challenging questions on the most cutting-edge IHL issues, many of which I discover thanks to the students, but some of which I am perfectly unable to answer.
