About

The Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict at Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights is one of the few part-time, innovative and intellectually challenging programmes in international humanitarian law and human rights offered today.

Overview

Designed for professionals with demanding jobs and responsibilities, the Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict at the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights provides them with a solid legal background to address the multiple challenges that arise in humanitarian emergencies, contemporary armed conflicts, human rights negotiations or criminal proceedings.

Features

Taught by Geneva-based law professors and world-renowned law experts and professors, the programme enables participants to gain specialized knowledge directly applicable to professional work. It also responds to the growing need for specialists to address complex situations – in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine and elsewhere – and challenging processes such as criminal proceedings, international negotiations and humanitarian interventions.

Professionals can follow the programme online or in Geneva. For those online, an easy and interactive platform allows participants to interact directly with professors and other students during classes and access all the courses’ materials and readings.

Courses cover international law, international humanitarian law (IHL), international human rights law (IHRL), international criminal law (ICL) and the interplay between them, providing solid theoretical and practical knowledge of the law that applies to armed conflicts. They also address current issues and challenges, including the repression of terrorism, the responsibility to protect and international refugee law.

One output of the Executive Master is a master’s paper written under the guidance of a faculty member that allows participants to investigate a subject of special interest and deepen expertise through research as well as potential exchanges with experts, scholars and practitioners.
