Sandra Pointet / Geneva Academy
Applications for the Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict open at the beginning of March and close at the end of September (late applications are considered in exceptional circumstances).
If you receive an offer, you cannot defer it to a later year. However, it is possible to reapply.
The Executive Master has provided me with a much greater expertise and a range of fantastic legal tools that help me better understand and analyse international issues impacting states’ decisions, such as those related to disaster responses, influx of refugees or fight against armed groups.
Coming from 18 different countries, they work as diplomats, lawyers as well as for NGOs, UN agencies, the International Committee of the Red Cross and academic institutions.
In the context of the 2019 Geneva Peace Week and in partnership with IBAHRI, this event will address the too often obstructed right to legal assistance persons subjected to violence, arrest or detention are entitled to.
