Master of International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law
The Master’s program is conducted at the Viadrina European University, founded in 1991. As such, it continues the fine tradition of the first State University of Brandenburg (Alma Mater Viadrina, 1506 - 1811).
The University comprises three Faculties, the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Economics and the Faculty of Cultural Studies, in addition to affiliated Centres and Institutes. In close cooperation with the University of Poznan it also co-conducts the Collegium Polonicum in the sister city of Frankfurt (Oder), Słubice, located in Poland directly across the River Oder from the Viadrina.
In co-operation with Polish and other affiliated European universities the Viadrina especially endeavours to face the challenge of a newly open and expanded Europe building a bridge between Eastern and Western Europe. As well the University has numerous other international partner institutions around the world.
