EUROPEAN MASTER'S DEGREE IN HUMAN RIGHTS AND DEMOCRATISATION VENICE-BASED POST-GRADUATE PROGRAMME IN HUMAN RIGHTS CALLS FOR APPLICATIONS The European Master's Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation (E.MA) seeks candidates for its 2001/2002 programme. This unique studies programme was established in 1997 through the joint efforts of 15 partner European universities, with the support of the European Union, the Municipality of Venice and the Region of Veneto. It enjoys the sponsorship of UNESCO and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, and it benefits from the co-operation of the Council of Europe, the Organisation for the Security and Co-operation in 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, students receive substantial training for working as academics or staff in inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations. During the first semester (September to January) participants study and live in the medieval Monastery of San Nicola 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 MA in Human Rights and Democratisation conferred by the University of Padua. Students will be partially subsidised for their accommodation during the first semester and receive a mobility grant for the second semester (five months). 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 and to citizens of European countries that have applied for EU membership. All non-EU applicants should have a multiple entries Schengen visa for study reasons. Candidates should be fluent in English and have a good knowledge of French.
