Understanding and Securing Human Rights (Latin American Pathway)

Applications from candidates who do not meet the formal academic requirements, but who offer alternative qualifications and/or relevant experience are welcome.

Optional modules include: understanding human rights i: ideas and contexts; securing human rights i: actors and mechanisms; skills and strategies; understanding human rights ii: genocide; gross human rights violations and reconciliation; researching human rights: social research methods; translating human rights into law ii: topics in international human rights law.
