In the contemporary world the coexistence and interaction of legal regimes has become a characteristic feature. The same holds true for the human rights systems that have developed nationally, regionally and globally. This programme is a focused and demanding postgraduate degree programme. Small-scale teaching enables intensive interaction between students and lecturers, thus allowing for in-depth analysis, teaching and research. The programme focuses on studying human rights law in a comparative perspective whilst covering both international and regional human rights systems. We pride ourselves on being able to offer contributions to the programme from renowned human rights experts working in the field who bring the most recent developments and issues to the class room for real-time discussions. A study trip to human rights organisations in Strasbourg and Geneva is of course a must for this programme and will add to a genuine understanding of human rights law by helping to put theory into practice.
