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

The Geneva Academy was an essential step in my academic and professional career, since it enabled me to acquire the tools to face professional challenges and master the ‘language’ of international humanitarian law and human rights. After my LLM, I could present myself as a trustworthy candidate with a proven interest in the topics, and the knowledge of how to merge theory and practice in this field.
