The European Master's Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (E.MA) is an intensive and rigorous one-year academic programme to educate professionals in the field of human rights and democratisation. It is a multidisciplinary programme that reflects the indivisible links between human rights, democracy, peace and development.
You are entering a vibrant new era of learning where you will have the opportunity to meet and be taught by leading academics, experts and representatives of international organisations (in particular European Union representatives) while studying in a multi-cultural environment.
The programme offers a full intensive semester (the first, from September to January) in Venice and a semester (from February to July) in one of the 41 participating Universities.
The E.MA first semester curriculum consists of a core programme, made up of five thematic sections (the first stream) aimed at the plenary group of students, and a series of second stream activities consisting of units devised for smaller groups to which you will enrol.
The five thematic sections (running over some weeks) whose attendance will be compulsory for everybody are the following:
- TS 1: Human Rights Institutions, Mechanisms and Standards
- TS 2: Human Rights in Context: History, Philosophy, Religion and Anthropology of Human Rights
- TS 3: Democratisation
- TS 4: Human Rights and Globalisation
- TS 5: Human Rights and Security + Field trip
In addition, during the so called "second stream", specific seminars (with limited enrolment) will be offered on state of the arts topics and issues such as "Gender and Human Rights"; "Climate Change and Human Rights" as well as "Human Rights Defenders".
