The European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation

The European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (EMA) is the main teaching programme of the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC).

Established in 1997 thanks to the vision of 10 pioneer universities, EMA is the oldest Master’s programme supported by the European Union. Over the years it has developed according to changing approaches to human rights and democratisation in Europe and in the world and to more integrated strategies in trans-European human rights education.
