VENICE-BASED POST-GRADUATE PROGRAMME IN HUMAN RIGHTS AND DEMOCRATIZATION CALLS FOR APPLICATIONS The European Masters Degree in Human Rights and Democratization seeks candidates for its 2000-2001 programme. This unique studies programme was established in 1997 through the joint efforts of 15 participating European universities, with the support of the European Union, the Municipality of Venice and the Region of Veneto. Not only does it enjoy the sponsorship of UNESCO and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, but it also benefits from the co-operation of the Council of Europe and other international organisations. This post-graduate degree offers qualified candidates an excellent opportunity to learn about human rights and democratisation both from an operational and a policy-oriented point of view. While being taught in law, philosophy, political science and anthropology by leading lecturers and experts, participants receive substantial training for working as academics or staff in inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations. During the first semester (September to January) students study and live in the medieval Monastery of San Nicolo in Venice, the Lido. A key feature of the first semester is the involvement of experts -- often fresh from the field emphasising the action-oriented aspect of the programme. The semester ends with a one-week field trip. In the second semester (February to June) students continue their studies in a country different from that of their home. The partner universities are situated in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. After successfully passing exams and a dissertation, graduates will be awarded the degree of European Master in Human Rights and Democratization conferred by the University of Padua. Participants receive subsidised accommodation during the first semester and a monthly mobility grant for the second semester. Candidates should have a university degree in a field relevant to human rights and democratisation including law, social science and the humanities. Working experience in the area of human rights, development co-operation or humanitarian aid in international, governmental or non-governmental organisations would be an asset. Places are open to EU citizens, to non-EU citizens who are regular residents in an EU country and to citizens of European countries which have applied for EU membership. The deadline for applications is 31 March 2000.
