The European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (EMA) is one of seven Regional Master’s Programmes organised by the Global Campus of Human Rights – a unique network of more than one hundred universities around the world seeking to advance human rights and democracy through regional and global cooperation for education and research. It was created with the support of the European Union and participating universities from all the EU member states, the United Kingdom and Switzerland. Adam Mickiewicz University is a member of the network and actively participates in its educational and research activities.

The European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (EMA) is a one-year, full-time course that provides a practice and policy-oriented approach to learning that combines legal, political, historical, anthropological, and philosophical perspectives of human rights and democratisation with skill-building activities and a field trip exercise. EMA is both a residential and an exchange programme. The first semester from September to January is organised at Global Campus Headquarters in Venice and the second semester from February to July takes place in one of the 42 participating universities within the member states of the European Union, the UK and Switzerland.

Students are taught by leading academics representing EMA participating universities, experts and representatives of international organisations and NGOs, while studying in a multicultural environment. The curriculum prepares participants for working in national, international, governmental, inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations as well as research institutions dealing with human rights and democratisation.
