Our LLM promotes academic excellence and independent critical thinking. One of its core outputs is an LLM paper (6 ECTS) on a specific issue addressed by the programme and written under the guidance of a faculty member.
This paper, written in English or French, gives students an opportunity to investigate a subject of special interest to them and deepen their knowledge and expertise through research as well as exchanges with experts, scholars and practitioners.
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.
Our objective is to produce graduates who will be leaders in the humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice fields.
The Geneva Academy alumni community is made up of over 700 members who work worldwide in the humanitarian and human rights fields.
Our three master's programmes provide a solid foundation for careers in the humanitarian and human rights fields.
Yuval Shany is the Hersch Lauterpacht Chair in International Law at the Law Faculty of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He also teaches human rights in the Geneva Academy’s LLM in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights.
