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.
In his new book War, our Former Director and Faculty Member Professor Andrew Clapham discusses the relevance of the concept of war today and examines how our notions about war continue to influence how we conceive rights and obligations in national and international law.
