Deadline: 17 May, 2015
Open to: graduate students from all academic backgrounds, from different regional masters in human rights and democratisation
Venue: Venice Lido, Italy, from 26 June to 4 July, 2015


EIUC Venice School of Human Rights was born in 2010 with the goal of studying today’s challenges in the field of human rights. It allows its participants coming from all over the world to list these challenges and examine their reasons and possible solutions they can deploy. The EIUC Venice School at the same time, combines theory and practice and its faculty involves both academics and practitioners.

The EIUC Venice School of Human Rights will take place from 26 June to 4 July, 2015. Courses are scheduled to take place in Venice at the premises of the European Inter-University Centre in Human Rights and Democratisation over a period of 9 days. The courses will be taught in English by internationally recognised experts in the fields of human rights belonging to EIUC’s partner universities and other organisations that support EIUC projects and endeavors. The Venice School intends to highlight that the respect for human rights is the responsibility of all, that “Human Rights are our responsibility”.

Additionally, participants will benefit from an extremely rich cultural environment including visits to museums, galleries, churches and the Venice Biennale. Finally, they will be able to relax and enjoy walking along the Lido beaches or cycling around the island once the courses finish in the afternoon.


The Venice School is addressed to graduate students from all academic backgrounds, students from the different regional masters in human rights and democratisation, to E.MA alumni as well as to human rights practitioners willing to deepen and improve their knowledge in human rights issues.

All courses are to be held in English language, therefore it is essential that all participants understand and speak English fluently.

Lectures will be of particular interest to graduates in the realms of Law, Political Sciences, Economics, Sociology, Philosophy, Anthropology or similar who want to address the topics proposed from a multi-disciplinary approach that will be useful in further engagements in the field.

EIUC will review applications on an on-going basis. This way, EIUC aims to give participants as much time as possible for the organisation of visa, travelling and accommodation (see also: Practical Information).  Please visit this website for more information about visa requirements
