Scholarships for Indonesian students
The Indonesia programme offers two fully-financed scholarships for the two-year Master’s programme The Theory and Practice of Human Rights, starting in August 2006. Qualified Indonesian students are invited to apply.
Description and aim of the Master’s programme
The Master’s programme focuses on human rights in theory and practice. International human rights are analysed from legal, political and philosophical points of view. Human rights law is approached as a part of public international law at global and regional levels. Different levels of implementation are examined - international, regional and national.

The legal as well as the political forms of implementation are considered also. Building on a basic knowledge and understanding of the normative and institutional framework, contemporary issues relating to terrorism, religion, ethnicity and women are studied. Attention is also given to the philosophical and political aspects of the human rights system.
The programme aims at developing your research and analytical skills, your capacities to identify issues and problems relating to the realization of human rights, and your ability to contribute to the resolution of these issues and problems. The programme is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary. The main focus is international human rights law, but the programme also includes topics in the Social Sciences and Humanities.
