    The aim of this Master's Degree is to train professionals from different disciplines to be able to work in the defence and promotion of human rights and democracy both at home and abroad.

    When students graduate, they have a high level of expertise in the different mechanisms for the protection and promotion of human rights, having acquired the necessary competences to design, plan and manage programmes for the protection and promotion of human rights or to participate in existing mechanisms. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the Master’s course, these professionals are trained to work in the different areas in which human rights and democracy are protected and promoted.
