Description

On this course, human rights are studied from a global perspective, focusing on agents of rights, human rights indicators and institutions. The global perspective means taking into account the ways in which increasing global connections – in politics, economy, regulations, environment, conflicts, migration, and activism – affect how human rights are conceived and used, internationally, nationally, and regionally. “Agents” refer both to agents that have human rights and agents that are responsible for realizing human rights. “Indicators” are understood broadly and refer to practical and theoretical standards for the assessment of development on the field of human rights in different sectors. “Institutions” refer to the political and social infrastructure within which human rights agents act and which to varying degrees promote or inhibit development. The course also highlights how global and political changes affects who and what are regarded as human rights agents and institutions. The course aims to stimulate critical perspectives and reflection on consequences of different positions through the study of current literature from a range of research fields, as well as the study and assessment of actual cases.

Application period October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
