Overview

Our highly qualified and diverse full-time and part-time (visiting) faculty prepare students to engage in comparative and inter-disciplinary analysis of complex human rights problems. The  Human Rights program at Central European University (CEU)  offers practical instruction in the specific legal mechanisms and institutional processes that may be used by national human rights organizations to effectively approach human rights issues confronting transitional and established democracies.

As with the other programs at the Department of Legal Studies, the  LL.M. in Human Rights program at Central European University (CEU)  is committed to research-based teaching. Areas of research and teaching include: mechanisms for the protection of human rights in all international and regional human rights regimes, freedom of expression and freedom of religion, human rights and criminal justice, political rights, non-discrimination, minority protection, human rights in Africa, politics and theories of European integration from a human rights perspective, and more.

Courses by our part-time (visiting) faculty build on the core content taught by permanent faculty, permitting us to introduce courses on contemporary human rights challenges as they arise. The program also benefits from close cooperation with other Master’s programs at the Department via optional thematic specializations.
