Master Student Reports – Human Rights

During the course Human Rights and Democracy Clinic Part II, students on the masters program work in small sub-groups to plan and execute a project of relevance for human rights and democracy.

The course provides an in-depth view of some of the methods and theories that inform the practical work of advancing human rights and democracy at different levels of society. It includes a set of workshops where students will develop transferable skills like project planning, information gathering, analysis, report writing and oral presentation.

The project materializes in a larger report that documents a current issue with relevance for the field of study. Reports emphasize the interplay between theory and practice, and especially how the interpretation of central concepts, legal frameworks and social processes shape what are considered as relevant problems and measures in the advancement of human rights and democracy.
