Field Trip to Kosovo

The field trip to a post-conflict area, such as Kosovo, offers students the ability to discuss human rights issues in post-conflict settings with international, national and local human rights institutions and civil society and gives them some very practice-oriented insight into the daily human rights work and the therewith related challenges and possible manifold approaches. Furthermore, students get to know the working and living conditions in a different cultural setting in an international environment. 

Visits of Institutions

Students of this programme are offered to visit international partner institutions such as the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights, the OSCE, UN institutions, the International Anti-Corruption Academy in order to gain insight into these organisations.

The field trip to Kosovo is organised by Marijana Grandits, Academic Coordinator of The Vienna Master in Human Rights.
