Developed in association with the renowned human rights barrister, Geoffrey Robertson, QC, and distinguished colleagues of the world-famous Doughty Street Chambers, this innovative programme examines some of the key challenges in the field of International Human Rights.

You will be introduced to a range of topics in the field including, a history of human rights law, international relations, humanitarian intervention, free speech, prohibition of torture and inhumane treatment and international criminal law, with all theory supplemented by cutting edge research and case studies.
This is a 1 year, full time programme.
You will be taught by internationally diverse academics and practitioners with vast experience in academia and outside it.
The programme puts strong emphasis on experiential learning, with outside activity complementing the work in class.
