Following the success of its other professional training programmes, the Academy is pleased to announce the launch of a new Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict. The programme is a two-year post-graduate degree for practitioners, which builds on the Academy's cutting edge research, academic excellence and historic ties to the Committee of the Red Cross. It features distinguished faculty from the University of Geneva, the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, and other world-renowned universities, as well as members of the wider judicial and human rights community. Every year between fifteen and twenty legal practitioners - diplomats, legal advisors, NGO staff and human rights advocates - are admited to the programme, which is designed to enable participants to gain specialised knowledge, discuss pressing issues facing the international community, and search for ways in which the law can be applied to their day-to-day professional activities.
