Recognizing Exceptional Academic Work
Arthur Nguyen dao
The Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (MTJ) promotes academic excellence and independent critical thinking. One of its core outputs is a master’s paper on a specific topic related to transitional justice, written under the guidance of a Faculty member.
Awarded every year during the Graduation Ceremony, the Best MTJ Paper Prize distinguishes a graduating student for a master's paper of exceptional academic quality.

In and Around War(s) is a new podcast series of the Geneva Academy on contemporary legal issues related to wars.
Students of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights and MAS in Transitional Justice who will graduate in October dedicated their summer to the writing of their LLM and MTJ papers – a key output of both programmes.
The programme provided me with an opportunity to step back, consolidate and reflect on my past experiences in a way that I was not able to do while actively working. The result was a greater appreciation of how different disciplines and tactical approaches can be utilized to advance justice. I emerged from the programme a strong advocate for transformative transitional justice.
Core courses are mandatory and are spread over the two semesters. They cover central theoretical and practical issues in the fields of transitional justice, human rights and the rule of law.
Internships allow our students to acquire first-hand professional experience via internships with leading actors and agencies in the field of transitional justice.
Our campus spans from Geneva’s international area to downtown Geneva with its vibrant cultural life.
Our Master in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law is organized around intimate learning communities enabling close interaction between students and professors.
