Why study this programme?

The Master's specialisation Human Rights and Migration will give you insight in how international and European legal instruments influence the position and mobility of citizens in the EU and how the major international documents and courts protect the rights of individuals. You will study legal issues relating to migration and human rights in its theoretical, operational, social and political context. The basis of the programme lies in European legislation and international human rights treaties.

With this specialisation, you will be thouroughly prepared for this lively field of law that constantly develops and changes. Changes in public opinion in a European member state may affect its domestic legal order, which in turn influences European laws and vice versa. This specialisation therefore also focuses on the dynamic interplay between national, European and international law, as well as on the ins and outs of the EU lawmaking process.
