Applications for the European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (EMA) are now open

The call for applications for the academic year 2024/2025 is now open. Applications are accepted and processed on a rolling basis.

  • Deadline for non-EU and all scholarship applicants: 12 February 2024.

  • Deadline for EU and self-funded applicants: 16 April 2024.

The EMA is a one-year, full-time course that provides a practice and policy-oriented approach to learning that combines legal, political, historical, anthropological, and philosophical perspectives of human rights and democratisation with skill-building activities and a field trip exercise.

Students are taught by leading academics representing EMA participating universities, experts and representatives of international organisations and NGOs, while studying in a multicultural environment.

The curriculum prepares participants for working in national, international, governmental, inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations as well as research institutions dealing with human rights and democratisation.

The Programme is organised by the Global Campus of Human Rights, a worldwide network of universities seeking to advance human rights and democracy education. EMA was founded in collaboration with 43 universities from all EU member countries, as well as the UK and Switzerland.

EMA is a residential as well as an exchange program. The first semester, from September 2024 to January 2025, is held at the Global Campus of Human Rights in Venice, and the second semester, from February to July 2025, is held at one of the 43 participating universities spread across the EU, as well as the UK and Switzerland.
