10 reasons for choosing the MTJ at the Geneva Academy:
The 88 students enrolled in our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights and MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law started their respective programmes last week.
Our new Working Paper Non-State Actors and Enforced Disappearances: Defining a Path Forward discusses the growing phenomenon of disappearances committed by non-state actors and the need to rethink the current definition of enforced disappearance to address this reality, improve the situation of victims and ensure proper accountability of non-state actors.
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.
I enjoy the fact that I am surrounded by extremely talented people who come from different countries, and who have become very special friends. The diversity of the MTJ and the multiplicity of professional backgrounds are what makes the classes more enriching.
