1. is it a good idea to study in Geneva on that topic (I am thinking of Graduate Institute)?
If you can afford it - sure.

2. is it possible to find a job after my studies in Geneva?
Everything's possible. If you're looking for a guarantee, though, you won't find any. As you know yourself, the Geneva area is home to some major international institutions incl. several NGOs and some NPOs, for which your degree might be most relevant.

However, the Swiss education system works differently to that in e.g. Anglo-Saxon world, i.e. the university or institution is there to teach you, not to help you enter the workforce. The latter is your own responsibility and you will largely need to look for a job on your own with limited to no support from the institution.

Also, I take it you're Armenian, please be aware that studying in Switzerland doesn't entitle you to continue to stay here after graduation and you have no higher priority than other non-EU job seekers. You do have a limited amount of time after graduation to look for a job, though, sufficient funding provided - it's usually six months.

Last but not least, the labor market in Switzerland is generally pretty to very competitive and this field will be no exception. I can only support Medea's suggestion to try the internship route as early in your studies as possible.
