Candidates must have:
Each application is considered in its entirety, including transcripts, extracurricular and voluntary activities, work experience, personal background, letters of recommendation, personal statement and language skills.
In considering each individual, the Admissions Committee seeks not only to identify characteristics that are important to academic success in the programme, but also other qualities that promote diversity and excellence in the student body.
Core courses are mandatory and are spread over the two semesters. They cover central theoretical and practical issues in the fields of transitional justice, human rights and the rule of law.
Participation in this moot court allows students to put in practice the notions and legal tools they have learned in class. It is also an opportunity to explore issues of redress and accountability that form part of transitions following armed conflict or massive human rights abuses.
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.
More focused attention is needed today to meet the challenges of transitional justice. Critical normative and practical thinking is required to properly grasp and address what is at stake in societies emerging from conflict and authoritarian rule.
