Clinical work is an essential part of the programme.

It exposes students to contemporary transitional justice issues and provides them with the necessary skills to work in the field.

Throughout the year, experts on transitional justice deliver lectures on key topics related to the daily work of practitioners. Lectures are complemented by seminars, during which students are asked to analyse and discuss situations in specific countries, such as Sri Lanka and Colombia.
