Our Master of Advanced Studies in Transitional Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law (MTJ) is one of the very few courses on this subject worldwide. It is structured around the following five components.

CORE COURSES

Core courses are mandatory and are spread over the two semesters. They are structured in six modules that cover central theoretical and practical issues in the fields of transitional justice, human rights and the rule of law.

SPRING TERM TRACKS

During the Spring Semester, three different tracks – Thematic Focus, Clinical Work or Academic Research – allow students to tailor their studies according to their particular interests. Allocation of places in the different tracks is based on a competitive selection process.

SPRING SCHOOL

The Transitional Justice Spring School, a special one-week course, discusses cutting-edge issues in transitional justice. It is held in Spring Semester and is also open to external participants.

MASTER’S PAPER

The master’s 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.

STUDY TRIP

In the second semester students have the opportunity to go on a study trip to familiarize with the history of transitional justice.
