15th Consecutive Trip to Study UN Human Rights Treaty Procedures in Geneva for  
Members of the University of London and Others     
May 2004                 
Course Leader: Bernie Hamilton 
 
These arrangements are based on last Novemberís trip. Students arrange their  
own travel, accommodation, insurance and meals, although we often eat lunch  
and dinner together. 
The estimated cost of Geneva travel and accommodation is £300.00  
 
TREATY MONITORING COMMITTEES GENEVA 
 
Two treaty monitoring committees will be studied: CAT at Palais Wilson & CESCR  
at the Palais des Nations.  
We should have an opportunity to observe country hearings, and see NGOs at  
work. We will meet with UN Committee members and staff, and with human rights  
NGO staff. It may also be possible to visit the Red Cross and International  
Law Commission.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID ABOUT RECENT GENEVA STUDY TRIPS 
 
" The trip to Geneva really put International Law in general and Human Rights  
advocacy in particular in perspective for me. Contrary to what I had  
envisaged, we were not only observing Committee meetings and 'taking in the  
atmosphere', as it were - we were also engaging in conversation with Committee  
members, learned members of the legal profession, and other observers and  
advocats... in short, it was more than worth the money. Perhaps less to the  
point but just as importantly: it was brilliant fun as well."               -  
AB University of Essex 
 
"I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing week in Geneva. It is rare  
to learn so much in such a short space of time and to have enjoyed oneself so  
much also. My colleagues have also been very impressed with the list of people  
you arranged for us to meet."         - GH Belfast 
 
" I would like to go again "                                    - CD  
University of Liverpool 
 
" A very rewarding experience "                                 - EF  
University of Sussex 
 
BOOKING DEADLINE:  The optimal number of students for this course is eight,  
and so students should send in their application and payment as soon as  
possible. Booking will close once we have an appropriate number of students,  
and not later than 12:30 p.m., Friday April 16, when I must arrange UN ID  
badges. Students are responsible for their own travel, food, insurance and  
accommodation arrangements. 
 
TRAVEL:  Depart Sunday May 2 - Return Friday May 7.  
 
Easyjet offers return economy flights Luton/Stanstead/Gatwick to Geneva  
[£60.00+]. 
 
ACCOMMODATION:  Hotels can be selected from the Web.  
http://geneva.yop.ch/hotels 
Prices vary throughout the year. Ask hotels about discounts. There is a very  
cheap hostel offering basic accommodation near the UNís Palais Wilson. Tel:  
+41 22 732 62 60. 
 
Hotels near the rail station are convenient for both Palais Wilson and Palais  
des Nations, as well as the airport.
