The Geneva Academy Student Council

The Geneva Academy Student Council (GASC) promotes the interests and welfare of Geneva Academy students. This ensures they all enjoy the richest student experience possible during their stay in Geneva.

Membership

Every student of the LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights and the Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law is a GASC member. They can therefore attend its meetings, parties and discussions, as well as stand for a position such as President, Student Officer or Secretary.

Objectives

The GASC members work together to:

  • Welcome new students
  • Offer a diverse array of social and cultural activities
  • Represent Geneva Academy students’ interests
  • Communicate effectively with the Geneva Academy Student Office and directorate

To teach International Humanitarian Law (IHL) at the Geneva Academy is a unique pleasure and challenge: nowhere else will you find so many brilliant young people from all around the world, keen to specialize in IHL and to work in this field; nowhere else will I be subject to so many challenging questions on the most cutting-edge IHL issues, many of which I discover thanks to the students, but some of which I am perfectly unable to answer.
