The Henry Dunant Research Prize, the Best LLM Paper Prize and the Best MTJ Paper Prize distinguished three graduating students for their exceptional academic work.
Professor of International Law at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies
Professor at the University of Essex School of Law and Director of the Essex Transitional Justice Network
Practicing Advocate at the Johannesburg Bar and Senior Programme Adviser at the International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ)
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.
