The European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (EMA) is organised by the Global Campus of Human Rights, a worldwide network of universities seeking to advance human rights and democracy education. It was created with the support of the European Union and 43 participating universities from all EU member states, plus the UK and Switzerland. The programme is a one-year course that provides a practice and policy-oriented approach to learning that combines legal, political, historical, anthropological, and philosophical perspectives of Human Rights and Democratisation with skill building activities and a field trip exercise. Students are taught by leading academics representing EMA participating universities, experts and representatives of international organisations and NGOs while studying in a multicultural environment. The curriculum prepares participants for working in national, international, governmental, inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations as well as research institutions dealing with human rights and democratisation.
