If you are working or teaching in the field of human rights, you
may wish to apply
for the one-year European Master's Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation
(E.MA.) program offered by the European Inter-University Centre for Human
Rights and Democratisation (EIUC).
What is the focus of the E.MA. program? According to EIUC
representative Nicola Tonon, "[t]he programme offers an action- and
policy-oriented approach to learning which combines interdisciplinary
perspectives with skills building activities. While studying in a
multicultural environment, students have the opportunity to share knowledge and
skills with leading academics, representing the 41 European universities
participating in the programme, as well as officials of international
organisations (including the European Union, the United Nations and the Council
of Europe), NGO experts and human rights activists."
If you matriculate, be prepared for some travel. Your first
semester will take place in Venice, Italy. During your second semester, you
will relocate to one of the 41 participating European universities. You will
also experience a one-week field trip to a post-conflict country.
The deadline to apply is March 31, 2012.
