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.
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.
The GASC members work together to:
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.
We offer scholarships to outstanding students who are unable to secure the funding required to cover tuition fees and/or the cost of living in Geneva.
LLM students have the opportunity to be taught by leading academics in the fields of international humanitarian law and human rights.
Our objective is to produce graduates who will be leaders in the humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice fields.
Our research examines issues that are under-explored, need clarification, or are unconventional, experimental or challenging.
