Human rights internationalization is taking place at the same time as other structural transformation processes in the life conditions of our planet. Human rights have become one of the major concerns in the international community agenda, challenging the states? sovereignty principle and practice. For the European Union as well, the promotion of human rights and the democratisation has become a key political aim.
As regards this subject, not only national states and international organisations are responsible, but also civil society has a role to play in the promotion and protection of human rights and democracy. Additionally, universities are morally responsible for making their experience available in order to build a better world.
The European Master in Human Rights and Democratisation began within this context in October 1997. As an interdisciplinary programme, the Master shows the indivisible links between human rights, democracy, peace and development. Students will have the opportunity to meet and receive lectures from some of the most excellent experts in Law, International Relations, Political Sciences, Sociology and Philosophy, in an international environment.
The programme aims at training high rank professionals in the field of human rights and democratisation. Those awarded with this programme?s degree will be prepared to work as academicians, panels and representatives in the field of intergovernmental, governmental and non-governmental organizations.
