The past year has been a demanding year for all of us. It implied, for an academic institution like ours, to adapt all our activities to the online format almost from one day to the next.

We offer scholarships to outstanding students who are unable to secure the funding required to cover tuition fees and/or the cost of living in Geneva.
Internships allow our students to acquire first-hand professional experience via internships with leading actors and agencies in the field of transitional justice.
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.
Our objective is to produce graduates who will be leaders in the humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice fields.
