specialization Human Rights
May you attack a church during armed conflict if a sniper is hiding in a tower? What rights do Turkish nationals have when they are tortured in a Venezuelan prison? Find out in this specialization.
In this one-year Master's programme you will become an expert in Human Rights. The programme is a specialization of the Master degree in International Law and the Law of International Organizations. It is a specialization in the broadest sense, covering all aspects of Human Rights. Human Rights are not recognized everywhere, nor are they interpreted the same way in all countries. In fact, there are several Human Rights' systems in place. Sometimes victims and their lawyers have to decide which system to choose to find their justice. This is the field you will deal with. You will take courses such as International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, International Institutional Law and Refugee and Asylum Law. You will enjoy great freedom to design your own programme, being able to choose from a wide range of optional courses. The services of some of the most important international law institutions will be available to you. These institutions reside in the Netherlands and include the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the International Law Library of the Peace Palace.
|Besides one compulsory course and the compulsory seminar, students have to pick four course out of a selected list of public international law courses plus one optional course. This gives students the opportunity to shape the programme to their needs. Like all masters, this programme is also concluded by writing a Master's thesis, worth 18 ECTS. |
