EIUC EU-UN Fellowship Programme
The EIUC EU-UN Fellowship Programme is a one-year project that complements the training activities of the E.MA by providing high level operational working experience for graduates of the master's programme. Its aim is to transfer knowledge and expertise on the operation and inter-relationship of the institutions of the European Union, the Member States, and the United Nations in the field of human rights. This unique programme was initiated in 1996 within the Human Rights and Democratisation Unit of the European Commission and has since gathered unanimous appreciation by all actors involved. The project provides 4 E.MA graduates annually with expertise in EU activities at the UN, thus boosting a multiplier effect for future work experience. At the same time it extends the human resources capacities of EU offices by supplying them with experts who present a strong track record in the promotion of human rights.
