Course description

The Master’s programme equips graduates for diverse career paths, including policy making, international service, public and governmental roles, legal practice in both public and private sectors, work with non-governmental organisations, and academic teaching and research. What sets this programme apart is its unique blend of general human rights protection with specific rights protection in armed conflict scenarios. The curriculum delves deeply into the connections between traditional international human rights law and international humanitarian law. It aims to provide a robust theoretical foundation on issues, principles, structures, substantive law, and relevant institutions. Additionally, the programme focuses on helping students develop practical skills to effectively apply their theoretical knowledge. By integrating these elements, the programme ensures that graduates are well-prepared to navigate and influence the complex landscape of human rights and humanitarian law.
