FOCUS ON: ERMA, the European Master’s in Democracy and Human Rights
The European Master's in Democracy and Human Rights (ERMA) is a one-year joint double master's programme offered by the University of Sarajevo and the University of Bologna. ERMA is characterized by an interdisciplinary approach and is intended for students who aim to combine academic studies and research with field experience in human rights issues.
The programme is structured in three terms: - from November to June activities are based in Sarajevo, where students attend lectures and prepare for exams; - from June to August students do a 7 weeks internship at partner NGOs or research centres within the Region; - from September to November the MA candidates write their final dissertation accommodated in Italy within the premises of the University of Bologna, and assisted by their academic tutors.
After having successfully completed three teaching modules, the new ERMA generation of 2013/14 is at the moment following the 4th cluster of lectures on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights led by Prof. Vesna Bojčić-Dželilović from the London School of Economics. Furthermore, during the past weeks students took part in fruitful study visits to the European Delegation to Bosnia and Herzegovina and to the Aljazeera Balkans headquarters.
