European Master's Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation 2012/2013

Dear Friends, 

The European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC) is proud to launch the 16th edition of its European Master's Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation (E.MA) 2012/2013.

E.MA is an intensive one-year master's programme aimed at educating professionals in human rights, democracy, peace and development. The programme offers an action- and policy-oriented approach to learning which combines interdisciplinary perspectives with skills building activities.

While studying in a multicultural environment, students have the opportunity to share knowledge and skills with leading academics, representing the 41 European universities participating in the programme, as well as officials of international organisations (including the European Union, the United Nations and the Council of Europe), NGO experts and human rights activists.

E.MA is both a residential and an exchange programme: during the first semester students stay in Venice (Italy), while for the second semester they relocate to one of the E.MA participating universities located throughout Europe. The course also includes a week-long field trip to a post-conflict country.

Explore E.MA and find out more at:
The deadline for applications is 31 March 2012.

We would be very grateful if you could please share this information with all your contacts.

Thank you for your collaboration,

Dr. Angela Melchiorre
E.MA Programme Director

Another paper in Top Ten on SSRN

In addition to my paper on China and global trade governance, which has stayed in the Top Ten list of SSRN for more than a month in a row, my paper on Google's possible WTO case against China has also been listed in the Top Ten. As I mentioned in my earlier post, my paper on the Google case was written long before the recent USTR request for info from China. The recent USTR  move has made the case different from the previous one, but many of the arguments in my paper still holds. Enjoy the paper!
