Course content

The LLM Gender, Conflict and Human Rights draws on the established research excellence of the Transitional Justice Institute to deliver a world-leading masters programme in the field.

This programme has been developed to enable students to:

Gain a systematic understanding, in-depth knowledge and critical awareness of the differential experiences of women and men of human rights norms and institutions, especially in conflict and post-conflict situations;

• Understand foundational concepts in gender theory and their application to human rights, international law and transitional justice;

• Gain knowledge and skills in carrying out research projects from design to write-up;

• Enhance skills in critically appraising published and commissioned research;

• Develop skills highly relevant to legal practice, and to gender policy, research and advocacy roles in the voluntary, public and private sectors in the UK, Ireland and beyond;

• Successful completion may also open up a range of further study and research options.
