Our 2017 Annual Report is out! It provides a look into our research and educational activities.
2017 has been an intense and busy year for the Geneva Academy with:
Through our distinctive mix of education, research, platforms and convening power, we continued to disseminate legal knowledge, inform policy recommendations, support practitioners, and provide a critical and scholarly forum to discuss and debate topical issues in international humanitarian law, human rights, international criminal law and transitional justice.
Marie-Charlotte Beaudry works as a Human Rights Officer/Women Protection Advisor at the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) in Bangui. She tells us about the programme and what it brought to her career.
Our new War Report article Iraq: Any Hope for Change? provides an overview of the non-international armed conflict in the country, including information about the classification of the conflict, its history, parties and developments in 2019.
This event marks the launch in Geneva of the book International Humanitarian Law and Non-State Actors: Debates, Law and Practice.
Robin Geiß, Swiss Chair of IHL at the Geneva Academy, will explore the disruptive potential of new military technologies with a focus on those areas where these technologies could fall through the cracks of the international legal order.

This training course will explore the origin and evolution of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) and its functioning in Geneva and will focus on the nature of implementation of the UPR recommendations at the national level.
This short course analyses the main international and regional norms governing the international protection of refugees. It notably examines the sources of international refugee law, including the 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, and their interaction with human rights law and international humanitarian law.
The Geneva Human Rights Platform contributes to this review process by providing expert input via different avenues, by facilitating dialogue on the review among various stakeholders, as well as by accompanying the development of a follow-up resolution to 68/268 in New York and in Geneva.
