The LLM/MPhil in Human Rights and Democratisation in Africa is a unique programme to which 25 individuals from African countries with the following degrees and preferably experience in the field of human rights are admitted:

  • Law students
    A degree allowing access to the legal profession (eg LLB or licence en droit)
  • Other students
    At least an Honours degree in a discipline relevant to human rights and democratisation

The objectives of the LLM/MPhil programme are:

  • To train human rights experts who can be employed in government ministries, other national, international and regional bodies concerned with human rights and democracy. The aim is to ensure effectiveness of these bodies, through imparting professionalism and operational competence. The end result is to ensure transfer of technical skills and strengthen the capacity of these organisations with the goal of improving the protection and promotion of human rights and democratisation in Africa. 
  • Expand collaboration among African universities. Collaboration should result in a network of lawyers and academics specialised in human rights and democracy. The programme envisages promoting research and teaching that addresses the particular needs of Africa. Some identified needs include conflict prevention; democratic transition; strengthening of civil society, institutional building and the rule of law. The programme also aims at developing and strengthening links between civil society, governmental bodies and international organisations.
  • Develop relationship between the African Masters and the other regional masters, such as the European Masters Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation (EMA), the Master’s Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation in South Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation.
