In order for humanitarian lawyers to be better able to understand the circumstances under which the law of armed conflict applies, they should be aware of the basic tactics involved in modern combat.
Olivier Chamard / Geneva Academy
This year, we are celebrating our 10th anniversary – a perfect time to take a look in the rearview mirror at the milestones we have passed. While there are many achievements we could highlight, we have selected our top ten to match our age!
Director of the Geneva Academy and Professor of International Criminal Law at the University of Geneva
Assistant Professor and Grant Holder of Excellence at the University of Geneva
Professor of Public International Law at the Law Faculty, University of Geneva
Professor of International Law at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies
We provide training and short courses for professionals who want to deepen their expertise in a specific issue.
Our objective is to produce graduates who will be leaders in the humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice fields.
The Geneva Academy alumni community is made up of over 700 members who work worldwide in the humanitarian and human rights fields.
Courses cover the law of armed conflict, international human rights law and international criminal law, and also address current issues and challenges.
Teaching and interacting with students from all over the world and with such diverse backgrounds is an experience unrivalled in its rewards. In fact, my classes have become a place where we share our respective knowledge, my role being that of recalling over and over the role of public international law in the participants’ everyday professional lives, allowing them to strengthen and enhance the impact of their arguments.
