Where the Geneva Academy is Based

The Geneva Academy is headquartered at the Villa Moynier, a historic villa surrounded by a beautiful park with a view of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc.

The Villa houses our research, Student Office, teaching assistants, administrative staff, events, training and classes for our Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict. It is accessible to people with disabilities.

The Antonio Cassese Room

The main conference room on the ground floor of Villa Moynier is named after Antonio Cassese, in honour of this pioneering international lawyer on international law and institutions.

In the Heart of International Geneva

Villa Moynier is close to public transport, the train station and the city centre. It is also walking distance from most international organizations like the United Nations (UN), International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Office of the UN Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), International Organization for Migration (IOM) and UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

A Larger Campus

Villa Moynier forms part of the Graduate Institute’s Campus de la paix and is five minutes’ walk from the Maison de la paix.

A Historic Location

Villa Moynier was the property of Gustave Moynier, the first President of the ICRC. It served as headquarters for the ICRC between 1933 and 1946.
