The Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (MTJ) promotes academic excellence and independent critical thinking. One of the core outputs is a master’s paper on a specific topic related to transitional justice, written under the guidance of a Faculty member.
The paper gives students an opportunity to investigate a subject of special interest to them, deepening their knowledge and expertise through research as well as exchanges with experts, scholars and practitioners. Students are encouraged to concentrate on specific case studies, legal frameworks or problems of immediate relevance to transitional justice.
Awarded every year during the Graduation Ceremony, the Best MTJ Paper Prize distinguishes a graduating student for an MTJ paper of exceptional academic quality.
