Human Rights and Global Politics: Legal, Philosophical and Economic Challenges


During the first year the Ph.D. programme includes mandatory lectures. Some of the courses will address methodological skills (research skills, definition of a research question, comparative research methodologies, theoretical approaches, academic writing and presentation skills), while two main multidisciplinary courses will revolve around the topics of Human Rights and Global Politics.

Ph.D. students must obtain 11 credits (CFU) from the compulsory courses, and 4 credits (CFU) from optional ones. The optional courses can also be selected from the various Ph.D programmes of the Scuola.

Courses and seminars are taught by internal faculty members, external experts, and professors from international Institutions.
