Erasmus Mundus Master's Programme in Human Rights Policy and Practice
The Erasmus Mundus Master’s Programme in Human Rights Policy and Practice offers courses and opportunities for study in Sweden, Spain, England, and Norway and brings together legal, sociological, political, anthropological, and practical perspectives. Students are supported from the classroom to the job market, preparing you for human rights work in civil society organizations, governments, the public sector, and business. To apply, you should have a minimum of two years’ practitioner experience in the field of human rights.
Human rights is an interdisciplinary field and require an understanding of legal and political processes, globalization, social structures and civil society, methodologies needed to ensure reliable data, and the cultural and ethnic boundaries that challenge human rights implementation.
Please note that due to the COVID-19, the EMHRPP programme has been postponed for one year for all admitted applicants. This means that no studies will take place in 2020 and that teaching for the entire programme will start only in September 2021.
Our next regular Application Procedure, for both Erasmus Mundus scholarship and self-funded candidates, will start around October 2021 for the 2022/2023 academic year.
Application Procedure for self-funded candidates of the academic year 2021-2023 is closed. Currently, there is no decision to open up. However, this may change in the spring. Any changes will be published on the programme website. If you wish to be contacted in the event that the Application Procedure for self-funded candidates opens, please announce your interest by emailing EMHRPPUGOT@gu.se.
