In the second semester, students have the opportunity to go on a study trip to learn about leading institutions and organizations active in the field of transitional justice and the history of transitional justice.
The Geneva Academy Student Association is responsible for organizing the MTJ study trip, which is partially financed by the Geneva Academy.
In past academic years, our MTJ students had the opportunity to travel to the Balkans (Kosovo), Poland and Nurember. They often recall these trips as one of the best experiences of the programme, which allowed them to put into practice what they have learned in class.
Students of our MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law (MTJ) spent, as part of the programme’s annual study trip, four days in Kosovo where they met with a wide range of experts and institutions involved in post-conflict reconstruction and the rule of law.

Students of our MAS in Transitional Justice, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law spent three days in Poland to look into transitional justice issues.
Last month, students of our Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law travelled to Nuremberg where they visited key transitional justice sites, met leading experts and exchanged with other students from Germany and Israel.
The programme was interdisciplinary. We not only heard legal perspectives about conflict resolution and dealing with the past but we also listened to talks from political scientists, artists, theologians, anthropologists or filmmakers.
