Academic, scientific or professional interest: This master’s programme offers advanced education on human rights, today’s challenges to peace and non-violence, and sustainable human development, delving into the mutual interdependence and complementarity of these three areas as privileged fields of increasingly interdisciplinary research. On the one hand, the academic interest of the course lies in the specialisation that it provides students with (who often have very different backgrounds) for voluntary work, and on the other, its professional focus empowers them to work in NGOs, international organisations, national civil services, etc. in the field of human rights, humanitarian aid and development cooperation.

PhD programme linked to this Master’s programme: Doctoral Studies in Human Rights, Peace and Sustainable Development; Doctoral Studies in Legal Studies, Political Science and Criminology
