We make every effort to keep our admission process as swift as possible. Please note that due to the number of applications received we cannot reply to inquiries asking us to verify receipt of application materials or confirm application status. Thank you for your understanding.
During the year, our students benefit from the Career Services of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies.
Our campus spans from Geneva’s international area to downtown Geneva with its vibrant cultural life.
Our three master’s programmes are organized around intimate learning communities enabling close interaction between students and professors.
Our events provide a critical and scholarly forum for experts and practitioners to debate topical humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice issues.
The Geneva Academy offers an exceptional quality of training in international humanitarian law, international human rights law, public international law, refugee law, and international criminal law. The interdisciplinarity and rigour of this programme greatly contributed to my professional development, both at the international criminal tribunals in the Hague and at the ICRC.
In this opening lecture of the academic year, Elisabeth Decrey Warner will share her experience, as Co-Founder and Former Executive President of Geneva Call, of promoting respect of international humanitarian law by armed non-state actors.
We look forward to welcoming students, their friends, families and our professors at the 2018 Graduation Ceremony.
