3. European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC)
European Master’s Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation (E.MA)
The Law Faculty of Universidade Nova de Lisboa is a member of the EIUC, located in Venice. It joins another 40 European universities in this academic endeavour which is supported, among other institutions, by the European Union.
One of the activities organised by the Centre is the Summer School on Cinema and Human Rights, but the Centre’s main teaching programme is the E.MA (European Master’s Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation), an intensive one-year advanced master’s programme on the indivisible links between human rights, democracy, peace, and development.
E.MA students attend classes in Venice during the first semester and spend their second semester writing a dissertation in one of the participating universities (two institutions for each EU member-state). FDUNL has been welcoming E.MA students in the last few years (the maximum number is 4 students each year), and several of its own graduates have successfully completed the programme. We are joined in this project by the Law Faculty of Coimbra, which is responsible for the admissions procedure.
Further information on EIUC and E.MA, is available on www.eiuc.org.
