The Executive Master programme promotes academic excellence and independent critical thinking. One of its core outputs is a master’s paper written under the guidance of a faculty member.
Once the online courses have been completed, participants have six months to submit a master’s paper. An online class on research skills helps students to research and write their papers.
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.
Courses cover the law of armed conflict, international human rights law and international criminal law, and also address current issues and challenges.
Our students have the opportunity to be taught by leading academics in the fields of international humanitarian law, human rights and transitional justice.
