For me as a practitioner, the Master in Transitional Justice not only allowed me to acquire a more solid legal background in criminal justice, theories of transitional justice or international human rights law, but it also provided me with a more holistic view on transitional justice and new perspectives I can use daily in my work.
The programme is structured around six 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 combines high-level academic education with real-world practice, allowing students to develop the transferable skills necessary to succeed in the professional world.
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.
