Course content

Engage with human rights practice by linking the legal, theoretical and technical skills needed to work in international organisations, fighting injustice, oppression and persecution.

You will study contemporary debates in human rights promotion and protection, researching the stories of violations, asylum, surveillance, peacekeeping and torture that are behind many of today's news headlines. Working with your tutors and alongside industry professionals, you will have the opportunity to investigate claims of human rights abuses, gather evidence and build cases for legal proceedings.

Your course will also hone your research and project management skills and develop your ability to write compelling funding applications and construct budgets, which are essential requirements for a career in this area.

Created in collaboration with tutors from our Leeds Law School, your course will provide you with the expertise and practical skills to help protect human rights and tackle abuses.
