Erasmus+ exchanges

The MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights has established an Erasmus+ student exchange partnership with the MA in Human Rights and Multi-Level Governance, Padua University, Padua, Italy. 

Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020.  It replaces the previous programme Erasmus Mundus, which focused primarily on student exchange.  The Erasmus+ encompasses a wider range of programmes but still maintains the student exchange dimension.

Students of the MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights can attend courses offered in English as part of the MA in Human Rights and Multi-level Governance at Padua University in either the Autumn or Spring terms.

The MA in Human Rights and Multi-level Governance is a 2-year Master of Arts, equivalent to 120 ECTS-credits.  All of its courses are offered in English.  It is run in part by the Human Rights Centre at Padova University. The Human Rights Centre hosts the UNESCO Chair in 'Human Rights, Democracy and Peace'; the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence: “Intercultural Dialogue, Human Rights and Multi-level Governance”; and Jean Monnet Chairs in European Studies. The MA in aims to develop ad-hoc knowledge and skills to promote and fulfil human rights within the broader context of legal and political processes and multi-level policies. Human rights law, multi-level governance framework, and the concepts of “human development” and “human security” are the paradigm of reference throughout the course.

Several course options in English are available*. Students from the MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights are required to earn the equivalent number of ECTS to fulfil the requirements of their MA (see details under the 'Structure' tab); the MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights modules are typically 10 ECTS each. Course offerings at Padua University include:

  • International and European Law of Human Rights (6 ECTS);
  • Human Rights and International Justice (6 ECTS);
  • International Organisation for Human Rights and Peace (6 ECTS);
  • Women's Human Rights (9 ECTS);
  •  Economic Institutions and Welfare (6 ECTS)
  • Human Rights Monitoring and Electoral Observation (6 ECTS);
  •  Culture, Society and Human Rights (6 ECTS).

More information on the modules available as part of the MA in Human Rights and Multi-level Governance can be found on Padua University's website.
