Following the lifting of most sanitary measures by the Federal Council on 16 February 2022, all the courses of our LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights and of our Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law will be taught in person, with recordings provided to students who are sick and cannot attend classes.
Extracurricular activities will follow the same format. Events can also take place in person without any restrictions: COVID certificates are not needed anymore, wearing a mask is not required and cocktails can be organized.
‘After almost two years of hybrid teaching – where courses were given simultaneously in class and online – and continuous adaptations to the COVID measures, we are very pleased to resume in-person teaching and to meet everyone on campus!’ says Professor Gloria Gaggioli, Director of the Geneva Academy.
‘This lifting also means that our students will have a much richer social life during their second semester, which forms an integral part of their Geneva Academy experience’ she adds.
For our Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict, teaching will continue in a blended format since most of our participants are practitioners who are not based in Geneva and who have registered to follow the programme remotely.
Said Condo Ndoli is the Head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) sub-delegation in Timbuktu, Mali and graduated from our Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict in 2021.

These took place in Geneva from 18 to 21 July 2022.
