The overall objective of the Executive Master is to acquire extended and specialised knowledge on children's rights in their theoretical as well as in their practical dimensions by the introduction of various concepts, approaches and experiences. The Executive Master is intended for professionals who work with children's rights issues, such as lawyers, psychologists, sociologists, judges, social workers, government officials, staff of non-governmental organisations, academics and journalists. Admittance presupposes a fair amount of practical experience and basic knowledge of children's rights issues. The Programme's design allows participants to combine the work for this Executive Master with professional duties. The methodology used includes mandatory teaching modules and distant learning methods, such as the elaboration of an individual training programme, practical training and the preparation of a thesis. Each mandatory module of the Executive Master will consider a specific theme, including the following: Children's rights in context, international legal instruments on children's rights, the best interests of the child, exploitation of children, the child, subject of rights, juvenile justice, international adoption, illicit transfer and kidnapping of children and implementation and monitoring strategies. The mandatory modules take place in Switzerland, alternately at IUKB in Sion/Bramois and at the University of Fribourg. The first mandatory module is scheduled from 7 to 12 April 2003. The tuition fee amounts to 9,000 CHF (app. 6,000 US $), which does not include travel and living expenses.
