Course Summary

Course Details

Gain the in-depth knowledge to champion international human rights practices amid a backdrop of mounting political, economic, social, legal, ethical and environmental challenges. Through lectures, independent research and group activities, you will formulate your own principled and reflective positions on these issues, and develop your confidence as you give presentations and engage with your course peers in discussions. Your organisational and problem-solving skills will be enhanced through planning and conducting interviews, developing project funding bids and managing budgets, giving you the hands-on experience highly sought after by third-sector organisations and charities. This course will complement an undergraduate degree in a related discipline such as politics or law, adding a specialism to your existing expertise. If your degree is in an unrelated subject, it could also act as a conversion course, helping you to forge a new career in this highly rewarding and dynamic area.

Course Benefits

You will learn from highly experienced and research-active tutors who are well regarded in the fields of human rights law and practice, security, peace studies, evidence gathering and crime investigation. Our course team includes Dr Rachel Julian, who has been researching local understanding of conflict in Myanmar with Nonviolent Peaceforce, Dr Steve Wright, an expert on torture technologies and surveillance employed by governments across the world, Dr Robin Redhead, an expert on indigenous people and women's rights, and Professor Eddie Halpin, who is chair of Huridocs, the Geneva-based human rights information and documentation centre.
