Our readers might be interested to learn about the European Master’s Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation (E.MA).
The E.MA is an intensive one-year master’s programme aimed at educating professionals in human rights, democracy, peace and development. The 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.
The E.MA is both a residential and an exchange programme: during the first semester students stay in Venice (Italy), while for the second semester they relocate to one of the E.MA participating universities located throughout Europe. The course also includes a week-long field trip to a post-conflict country.
The deadline for applications is 31 March 2012.
