Recognizing Exceptional Academic Work
Arthur Nguyen dao
The Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (MTJ) promotes academic excellence and independent critical thinking. One of its core outputs is a master’s paper on a specific topic related to transitional justice, written under the guidance of a Faculty member.
Awarded every year during the Graduation Ceremony, the Best MTJ Paper Prize distinguishes a graduating student for a master's paper of exceptional academic quality.

The papers aim to allow students to investigate a subject of special interest and deepen their expertise through research as well as exchanges with experts, scholars and practitioners.
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.
Core courses are mandatory and are spread over the two semesters. They cover central theoretical and practical issues in the fields of transitional justice, human rights and the rule of law.
Internships allow our students to acquire first-hand professional experience via internships with leading actors and agencies in the field of transitional justice.
Our campus spans from Geneva’s international area to downtown Geneva with its vibrant cultural life.
Our Master in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law is organized around intimate learning communities enabling close interaction between students and professors.
