MA International Human Rights

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Human rights play a major role in the political and social agenda of our times, both internationally and domestically. This programme takes an interdisciplinary approach to human rights and goes beyond a narrow, legalistic approach to the subject. You will examine the international process of human rights protection and advocacy, including the nature of the international order, the relationship between human rights and sovereignty of states, and the problems of intervention and resource redistribution. You will explore human rights from the perspective of disciplines such as international public policy, international law, global business and international organisations to build a broad conception of human rights in practice. Completing this degree will enable you to master the theoretical and conceptual aspects of the discipline of international human rights and acquire the necessary skills to work in the field in roles such as researchers, advocates and project managers. You will benefit from the wide-ranging expertise of highly qualified staff, with particular strengths in the fields of: •human rights •international relations •international organisations •international business The programme puts strong emphasis on experiential learning, with outside activity complementing the work in class. You will have opportunities to participate in conferences, take part in the Model United Nations, attend seminars given by high-profile figures in international politics, academia, human rights and the media, or even attend a humanitarian conference in Geneva.
