Can a church be attacked if a sniper hid in the tower during an armed conflict? Having the Polish nationality, being tortured in a Thai prison, what rights do you have? Can you invoke them and how?
In this program, you will be trained in human rights at the international level, but also in international humanitarian law and other related fields of (international) law. You will learn about the different systems and how human rights are interpreted within these systems and in different countries.
The LLM International Human Rights Law is a track registered under the LLM CROHO label Public International Law (60856). This is a Top Rated program in the Netherlands.
Why study this program in Groningen?
This program offers a broad approach to human rights. It is therefore a specialization in the broadest sense: it covers all aspects in and surrounding human rights. This will provide students with a context in which human rights function.
The faculty's research is carried out under the umbrella of the Groningen Centre for Law and Governance, in which all departments of the faculty are participating. Wherever possible teachers will use and involve this research in the courses that are being taught. Staff in the International Human Rights Law program are also active in the Global Health Law Groningen Research Centre.
Students will have to participate in four compulsory courses and the compulsory seminar for this program plus two optional compulsory courses. Like all masters, this program is also concluded by writing a Master's thesis, worth 18 ECTS.
