Aims. The purpose of the Master of Arts in Human Rights and Conflict Management is three-fold: 1. To train experts capable of evaluating the impact various types of conflict management intervention can have on the protection and promotion of Human Rights, both when choosing general policies and in day to day activities; 2. To train professionals with specialist skills in relief, rehabilitation, reconstruction and peace-building by transmitting the basic knowledge, language and techniques common to this sector, which facilitate the work of the operators while programming and during field missions; 2. To provide the participants with valuable work experience through the internship. The programme. The Master in Human Rights and Conflict Management is a one year postgraduate degree requiring mandatory attendance, divided into two phases: coursework and an internship. The residential coursework (about 600 hours, divided into 20 weeks of 30 hours each) is carried out in courses of varying length and the whole is divided into three modules: Preparatory Module, Module I and II. There are two comprehensive exams (covering the Preparatory Module + Module I and then Module II) plus tests within each course. The Preparatory Module, strategically important despite its brevity, aims at providing the students, all coming from different disciplines, a common base for the remaining Modules. The objective is twofold: conceptual clarification in order to fill in any understandable lacunae in background and training and a first sensitization to the complexity of human rights and conflict management. Module I is more theoretical and aims at investigating both the complexity of the scenarios in which international organizations operate and the sophistication of the cognitive capacities necessary for the solution of real problems. Module II is more practical/operative and aims at professionalizing the student by putting all of the notions and critical instruments learned during the first two modules into practice and context.
