The European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (EMA) is an exciting, interdisciplinary master, joined every year by about 90 students from all over the world. The first semester, students take courses at the EMA’s home base, which is located at the Lido (Venice, Italy) in an old monastery. Most courses are taught by lecturers from 41 different universities from EU countries. Utrecht University is one of the affiliated universities. So-called rolling seminars are taught by the EMA staff. In the second semester students take further courses and write their thesis at one of the 41 affiliated universities, depending on the match between the student’s interests and the university’s expertise. Professor Antoine Buyse (SIM, UU) is one of the EMA board directors.
EMA alumni form a closely knit network, spread over the globe.
The EMA now calls for applications. Deadline for the first round is 3 February 2020, for the second it is 30 March 2020.
