The ExMas Regulations (in French) establish the principles governing the organization of the Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict.
The Geneva Academy is a leading education and research institution in international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
Our students have the opportunity to be taught by leading academics in the fields of international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
Courses cover the law of armed conflict, international human rights law and international criminal law, and also address current issues and challenges.
The Executive Master promotes academic excellence and independent critical thinking. One of its core outputs is a master’s thesis.
I learned that law can be used as a powerful shield to protect certain values like peace, human dignity, non-discrimination, and also as a sword to fight for them. I learned this from professors who inspired me and continue to inspire me.
