This is the only Human Rights and Diplomacy MSc programme in the world taught in partnership with the leading training body of the United Nations: the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). We have also partnered with UN Women, The East African Centre for Human Rights (EACRights) and the Institute for Human Rights and Development in Africa (IHRDA).
Students can complete a substantial project for your organisation on a wide range of human rights issues. We suggest providing a starting project, but as the project progresses there may be other duties or projects that students are asked to complete as well. We are open to a work/project/internship that is either academic, campaigning, or more operational. Project topic examples that students can complete may include, but are not limited to: assisting with case; work; conducting qualitative or quantitative research on a specific human rights issue; briefing papers, reports and research papers; public affairs and public policy (non-profit, government, private sector, public sector consulting) as it relates to human rights; researching and identifying cases of human rights violations; collecting and analysing data regarding the human rights situation on specific issues and/or location; writing memoranda on International human rights law (legal sources, international organizations, human rights).
