Human Rights and Democratisation

Level: Postgraduate coursework

The Asia Pacific is home to more than half of the world?s population and offers unparalleled cultural richness. But it also faces a number of severe human rights challenges, including systematic discrimination, forced displacement, exploitation of children, people-trafficking and corruption. Human Rights and Democratisation (Asia Pacific Regional Program) has been specifically developed to build knowledge and expertise in the region, providing the human capacity to address these critical issues.

Uniquely, our program offers the opportunity to study both at Sydney and at one of four regional universities with expertise in human rights and democratisation. The degree forms the Asia-Pacific dimension of a consortium of global degrees established under the auspices of the European Union initiative on global human rights and democratisation, representing the most advanced human rights educational programs globally.
