More focused attention is needed today to meet the challenges of transitional justice. Critical normative and practical thinking is required to properly grasp and address what is at stake in societies emerging from conflict and authoritarian rule.
The programme is structured around five modules that cover central theoretical and practical issues in the fields of transitional justice, human rights and the rule of law.
The Master in Transitional Justice's clinical work comprises seminars that facilitate dialogue and critical reflection on specific situations, as well as research internships with leading actors.
In the second semester students have the opportunity to go on a study trip to learn about leading institutions and organizations active in the field of transitional justice.
Our Master in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law is organized around intimate learning communities enabling close interaction between students and professors.
