Master of Human Rights and Democratisation (Asia Pacific)

Course Description

The Master of Human Rights and Democratisation (Asia Pacific) is a unique degree that is partially funded by the European Union. The University of Sydney is part of a network of universities across the world that offer it – the most advanced human rights education programs at postgraduate level.

The course is taught across five universities and provides students with the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and skills in this field.

It offers students from across the Asia Pacific region and the world the opportunity to study the legal, sociological, philosophical and political contexts that underpin and drive human rights and democratisation challenges globally. The program combines rigorous academic knowledge, skills training and on-the-ground insights into what it means to be a human rights advocate from government, NGO, and private sector perspectives. Coursework is supplemented by field trips and workshops on a variety of human rights-related topics.

You will begin the course at the University of Sydney and spend the regional semester at one of four partner universities: Ateneo de Manila Law School (Philippines), Gadjah Mada University (Indonesia), Kathmandu School of Law (Nepal) and the University of Colombo (Sri Lanka). In the regional semester, you can choose to complete either a dissertation or an internship.

You will also have an opportunity to use our strong industry links in countries across the Asia Pacific for internship and job opportunities. Past internships have included organisations that work with migrants, children, women, refugees, sex workers, political prisoners, human rights defenders and legal aid advocates.

With a diverse student body that comes from all over the world, the Master of Human Rights and Democratisation (Asia Pacific) has a truly international feel that is impossible to replicate. There are at least 20 scholarships offered to students from the Asia Pacific region.
