The Geneva Academy is headquartered at the Villa Moynier, a historic villa surrounded by a beautiful park with a view of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc.
The Villa houses our research, Student Office, teaching assistants, administrative staff, events, training and classes for our Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict. It is accessible to people with disabilities.
Villa Moynier is close to public transport, the train station and the city centre. It is also walking distance from most international organizations like the United Nations (UN), International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Office of the UN Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), International Organization for Migration (IOM) and UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
Villa Moynier forms part of the Graduate Institute’s Campus de la paix and is five minutes’ walk from the Maison de la paix.
Villa Moynier was the property of Gustave Moynier, the first President of the ICRC. It served as headquarters for the ICRC between 1933 and 1946.
We are a leading education institution in international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
Our research examines issues that are under-explored, need clarification, or are unconventional, experimental or challenging.
Our publications address current issues and challenges and stimulate debates in the academic community and in policy-making institutions and governments.
We provide training and short courses for professionals who want to deepen their expertise in a specific issue.
Students of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights and MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law just arrived at the Geneva Academy for a busy orientation week before courses start next week.
On the occasion of the Geneva Conventions 70th anniversary, our Director Professor Marco Sassòli discusses their importance and our contribution to their implementation.
This photo exhibition by Giles Duley at the Humanitarium features some of the stories that were shown in a larger exhibition back in May 2019.
