Dear friends, 

The Transitional Justice Institute (with the School of Law) at the
University of Ulster in Northern Ireland invites applications for its LLM
in Human Rights Law commencing September 2007.

Building on Northern Ireland experiences, this innovative Masters
programme offers students a unique opportunity to examine the role of

Modules address a range of timely themes including: challenges to
realising the human rights and equality of women and minority groups;
critical perspectives on the 'rule of law' and policing in transitions;
human rights and the ongoing 'war on terror'; human rights and
humanitarian interventions; globalisation, development and human rights;
and human rights of indigenous peoples.

likely to be of particular interest to list subscribers.

the Jordanstown (Belfast) or Magee (L/Derry) campus. See
