The Podcast In and Around War(s) is Back for a Second Season

23 March 2023

Our podcast In and Around War(s) returns for a second season of conversations with our alumni on topical issues related to wars.

The conversations in this second season will delve into our alumni's experiences and career path and how they have addressed and continue to address challenging issues and situations related to wars.

Season 2 and its topical discussions will be available on the Geneva Academy’s website and YouTube channel, as well as on all podcast platforms – including Amazon Music, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and SoundCloud.

Hearing from the New Generation of Experts and Practitioners

The second season’s episodes will focus on the professional experiences of our alumni and how they address key questions that arise during contemporary wars, like engaging with armed groups, starvation or the right to privacy.

‘This podcast is aimed at a broad public – academics, students, humanitarian practitioners and all those interested in issues surrounding wars – including non-specialists. By featuring our alumni, we give space and hear from the new generation of experts and practitioners who use the law as a powerful protection tool in wars’ explains Nathalie Mivelaz Tirabosco, Head of Communication and External Relations at the Geneva Academy.

‘Their paths are an inspiration for young students wanting to embrace a career in the humanitarian field, and, for all of us, a reminder of that international law, individuals and organizations can make real changes on the ground’ she adds.
