The programme has been everything I expected and even more. The staff and professors are so interesting and knowledgeable individuals, but still very approachable. They make themselves very accessible to us, whether it is for a question on the class or something more personal and specific about our career.
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.
