In the second semester, students have the opportunity to go on a study trip to learn about leading institutions and organizations active in the field of transitional justice and the history of transitional justice.
The Geneva Academy Student Association is responsible for organizing the MTJ study trip, which is partially financed by the Geneva Academy.
In past academic years, our MTJ students had the opportunity to travel to the Balkans (Kosovo), Poland and Nurember. They often recall these trips as one of the best experiences of the programme, which allowed them to put into practice what they have learned in class.
Students of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and Human Rights (LLM) and MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (MTJ) spent a week in the Balkans – Belgrade, Sarajevo and Srebrenica – where they met experts and institutions who work in the fields of IHL, human rights and transitional justice.
Students of our MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law (MTJ) spent, as part of the programme’s annual study trip, four days in Kosovo where they met with a wide range of experts and institutions involved in post-conflict reconstruction and the rule of law.

Students of our MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law spent three days in Poland to look into transitional justice issues.
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.
