Graduation Ceremony 2022

Con-grad-ulations!  It was a pleasure to celebrate this year's graduates of the first Human Rights Master for their achievements and accomplishments in the course of the last academic year and the successful defense of their Master's theses! On this festive occasion, the graduates, their families and friends, as well as teachers of the program gathered for the Graduation Ceremony on the 10th of October at the Great Ceremonial Hall of the University of Vienna to celebrate the graduates' success and the ceremonial referral of the graduation certificates. Accompanied by a string quartet, the individual achievements of the students and their importance for human rights science and practice were particularly emphasized by the ceremonial speeches of the Studienpräses, Prof Peter Lieberzeit, the Scientific Director of the Master program, Prof Michael Lysander Fremuth, and a representative of the graduates, Miriam Soldan.

We wish the graduates all the best for their future and hope the valuable knowledge the program has provided you with during the last academic year will assist you in your goal of becoming dedicated future human rights advocates!
