The terms terrorism and international conflict are always at the centre of security policy discussions. International law and human rights make up a large share of these debates. Is it legitimate and legally acceptable to respond to a terrorist attack by sending in troops? Which human rights do you have to protect in particular? Any international conflict affects and involves at least two parties, thus more than one perspective needs to be taken into account when finding a solution. Within your Master of Human Rights you analyse these and many more controversies.
The Master of Human Rights teaches you to use the law to protect any individual and is the cornerstone for our democratic societies. To grasp the complexity of human rights, the programme is set up in an interdisciplinary fashion. While dealing with judicial subjects, you constantly analyse political foundations and institutional set-ups of any given state.
Your seminars may include topics such as social, cultural or civil law, discrimination, asylum politics or women’s rights. Depending on your individual focus, you may also have the possibility of qualifying to take up a profession in (international) criminal law.
The admission criteria of the two-year Master of Human Rights require an undergraduate degree.
A deep understanding for human rights and international conflicts opens up interesting, international job prospects. You can defend victims of any human rights violations in international organizations or NGOs. Other careers are possible in political institutions, media agencies or academic research. Whatever it is, a Masters degree will help you in reaching your career goals.
