The Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (MTJ) promotes academic excellence and independent critical thinking. One of the core outputs is a master’s paper on a specific topic related to transitional justice, written under the guidance of a Faculty member.
The paper gives students an opportunity to investigate a subject of special interest to them, deepening their knowledge and expertise through research as well as exchanges with experts, scholars and practitioners. Students are encouraged to concentrate on specific case studies, legal frameworks or problems of immediate relevance to transitional justice.
Awarded every year during the Graduation Ceremony, the Best MTJ Paper Prize distinguishes a graduating student for an MTJ paper of exceptional academic quality.
The programme has been everything I expected and even more. The staff and professors are so interesting and knowledgeable individuals, but still very approachable. They make themselves very accessible to us, whether it is for a question on the class or something more personal and specific about our career.
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.
