We carry out our mission in partnership with several international agencies, academic institutions and NGOs that pursue similar and complementary goals.
Sandra Pointet / Geneva Academy
We are a leading education institution in international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
Our research examines issues that are under-explored, need clarification, or are unconventional, experimental or challenging.
We provide training and short courses for professionals who want to deepen their expertise in a specific issue.
Our events provide a critical and scholarly forum for experts and practitioners to debate topical humanitarian, human rights and transitional justice issues.
The Geneva Human Rights Platform provides a dynamic forum in Geneva for all stakeholders in the field of human rights – experts, practitioners, diplomats and civil society – to discuss and debate topical issues and challenges. Relying on academic research and findings, it aims at enabling various actors to become better connected, break down silos and, hence, advance human rights.
