The European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (EMA) is a one-year course aimed at educating up to 100 professionals annually in the field of human rights and democratisation. It provides the foundation for a career in national, international, governmental, inter-governmental and nongovernmental organisations, as well as academic institutions dealing with human rights and democratisation.
The Master’s Programme offers an action- and policy-oriented approach to learning that combines legal, political, historical, anthropological, and philosophical perspectives with skill-building activities and a field trip exercise.
EMA is both a residential and an exchange programme. The first semester is organised at Global Campus Headquarters in Venice, while the second semester takes place in one of the 42 participating universities within the member states of the European Union plus the Switzerland and UK.
Students are taught by leading academics representing EMA participating universities, experts and representatives of international organisations and NGOs, while studying in a multicultural environment.
