The Ceremony for the Awarding of Diplomas of the Master in Democratic Governance – Democracy and Human Rights in the MENA Region (DE.MA)will take place on the 14 of July 2016 in one of the most spectacular rooms of Ca’ Foscari University, Aula Mario Baratto. Overlooking the Grand Canal at the point where the view has the widest sweep possible, the Aula Mario Baratto offers a unique panorama, that is made even more impressive by Carlo Scarpa’s exquisite interpretation of the multi-mullioned Gothic windows when he restored the room.
DE.MA is one of the leading academic programmes within the Global Campus of Master’s Programmes in Human Rights and Democratisation, carried out by the European Inter-University Centre (EIUC).
