Reference point for the promotion of Human Rights Education
Established during the academic year 1997-1998, E.MA is the flagship activity and first postgraduate course of EIUC, and reaches, with its next edition, its 18th anniversary. The E.MA Programme has become an educational reference point in the human rights field around the world. Its growing reputation is based on the selection every year of up to 90 students from around the world who are ready to work hard and commit to human rights as a profession. The European Inter–University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC) offers unparalleled access to human rights experts and practitioners from Europe who teach classes and offer students invaluable guidance for their future careers.

A joint European master’s programme
E.MA brings together experts and professors representing the 41 E.MA participating universities, officials of international organisations (including the European Union, the United Nations and the Council of Europe) and practitioners of national and international NGOs.
E.MA is both a residential and an exchange programme: during the first semester students stay in Venice (Italy), while for the second semester they move to one of the E.MA participating universities located throughout Europe. Subject to the availability of financial resources, the course also includes a week-long field trip to a post-conflict country.

 The E.MA Programme is taught by an exceptional faculty and offers one of the most comprehensive Human Rights and Democratisation programmes in the world.

Application deadline: 15 March 2015.
 The sooner you send your application the more chance you will have to be accepted in E.MA 2015/2016.
