First Level Master's Diploma

Human Rights and Conflict Management


The MA programme is designed to provide students from different cultures and backgrounds with a deep understanding of the linkages between human rights and conflict management theory and practice.

The curriculum, strongly field oriented, prepares participants for working with NGOs, governments, aid agencies, the UN system, regional organisations and other institutions where a deep understanding of these issues is critical.
