The second term of the Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law started with a very special occasion: a study trip to Nuremberg. A key site for thinking about transitional justice as a contemporary response to mass atrocity.
In this interview, Tafadzwa Christmas, a Zimbabwean student enrolled in the Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law, tells us about the programme and life in Geneva.

More focused attention is needed today to meet the challenges of transitional justice. Critical normative and practical thinking is required to properly grasp and address what is at stake in societies emerging from conflict and authoritarian rule.
The programme is structured around five modules that cover central theoretical and practical issues in the fields of transitional justice, human rights and the rule of law.
The Master in Transitional Justice's clinical work comprises seminars that facilitate dialogue and critical reflection on specific situations, as well as research internships with leading actors.
Our campus spans from Geneva’s international area to downtown Geneva with its vibrant cultural life.
Our Master in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law is organized around intimate learning communities enabling close interaction between students and professors.
