What is GCA?

The Global Campus Alumni (GCA) is an international organisation (AISBL) registered in Brussels, Belgium. It is a network of seven alumni associations gathering over 3,000 experts, activists and professionals spread throughout the world. Alumni have graduated from one of the master programmes of the Global Campus of Human Rights (GC), with headquarters in Venice, Italy, and funded by the European Commission.

GCA has the following objectives:

  • Promote interaction among the Members and support their development through advice, expertise and networking;
  • ­Strengthen professional relationships, peer­-to-­peer exchange and links with the Global Campus of Human Rights;
  • Promote the work of the Members at regional and international human rights fora;
  • Through the work of the Members help contribute to the broader goal of the protection and promotion of human rights.

The GCA Network

GCA builds connections, create opportunities and shares expertise amongst GC graduates. Through our online platform, they can rekindle memories and experiences; find fellow graduates across the globe and exchange with colleagues shaping human rights practice and working in diverse roles.

“My best memory is the master itself. A perfect harmony of different cultures, people, languages, professors and students who meet with the sole purpose to pursue the common good and to protect human rights.” EMA alumn 2013/14

If you are a GC graduate, update your details to ensure you are part of our growing network. We aim to help you connect with other alumni to meet for a coffee in a new city, work together or find people with particular expertise….

“It’s been fantastic to work with fellow alumni and find former classmates in meeting rooms in Brussels or Geneva.” – EMA alumn 2004/2005

Connecting alumni among each other is one of our main aims. That way you are part of our growing network and can connect with other alumni to meet for a coffee in a new city, work together or ask for advice. We also get contacted regularly by the Global Campus of Human Rights, the European Commission, Governmental and Non-Governmental Organizations, and other institutions looking for experts in a particular field. So make sure your contact details and information about your expertise and interest are always up to date.
