A major advantage of being a student at the Geneva Academy is having access to our broad range of public events featuring key experts and issues in international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
We host some of the world’s leading thinkers and speakers on international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice who share their research, views and experiences and directly touch upon topics addressed in our programmes. These lectures are free to attend, open to the public and take place at lunchtime or in the evening.
Our students also have access to conferences and public events organized by the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, the University of Geneva and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
