E.MA: professionals in human rights and democratisation

The European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (E.MA) is an intensive one-year advanced master’s course aimed at preparing professionals for a career in international organisations, field operations, governmental and non-governmental bodies, and academia. E.MA offers an action- and policy-oriented approach to learning that combines interdisciplinary perspectives with skills building activities.

Prestigious international faculty

While studying in a multicultural environment, students have the opportunity to meet and be taught by leading academics representing the 41 E.MA participating universities, officials of international organisations (including the European Union, the United Nations and the Council of Europe) and experts and practitioners of national and international NGOs.

Studying abroad

E.MA is both a residential and an exchange programme: during the first semester students stay in Venice (Italy), while for the second semester they move to one of the E.MA participating universities located throughout Europe. Subject to the availability of financial resources, the course also includes a week-long field trip to a post-conflict country.

The programme is run by the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation which is a leading international centre for research and education.
