We provide training and short courses for professionals who want to deepen their expertise in a specific issue.
Our objective is to produce graduates who will be leaders in the humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice fields.
The Geneva Academy alumni community is made up of over 700 members who work worldwide in the humanitarian and human rights fields.
Courses cover the law of armed conflict, international human rights law and international criminal law, and also address current issues and challenges.
Teaching and interacting with students from all over the world and with such diverse backgrounds is an experience unrivalled in its rewards. In fact, my classes have become a place where we share our respective knowledge, my role being that of recalling over and over the role of public international law in the participants’ everyday professional lives, allowing them to strengthen and enhance the impact of their arguments.
