Overview

Why study this  Human Rights and International Conflict course at London Metropolitan University?

Human rights and international conflicts confront us with the most urgent moral and political issues of our time. 

Taught by published experts in human rights, peace and conflict studies, international relations, politics, history, philosophy and women’s studies, the Human Rights and International Conflict master’s degree at London Metropolitan University will equip you with the kind of understanding necessary to work for peace, justice and human rights in the real world.

The Human Rights and International Conflict MA explores the relation of states and their international organisations to the idea and practice of human rights. You’ll gain a strong grasp of the moral, ethical, political and legal issues at stake in international relations and conflicts, including the current conflict between Islamism and the international community of states.

You’ll confront the issue of how to reconcile theoretical unconditional rights with a consequentialist ethic of political responsibility and security. You’ll also explore particular interests, problems and conflicts that demand judgement and action.

The master’s degree will provide both a solid academic grounding in human rights and international relations, and offers a wide choice of optional modules. You’ll be trained in research methodology before completing a 12-15,000 word dissertation dealing with a subject of your choice.
