Presentation and educational aims


The Phd programme »Human Rights: Evolution, Protection and Limits« is intended for those who seek to deepen their research interest in various issues related to human rights, in an interdisciplinary and intersectoral framework. The PhD's faculty is composed of scholarly experts in the fields of law, philosophy, economy, history and sociology.

As part of its activities, the programme offers courses intended to allow students to expand and deepen their knowledge in pressing issues and approach the subject of human rights from different perspectives. Additionally, it offers cycles of seminars and organizes conferences with renowened international experts, hailing either from the academic world or international organizations working in the field of human rights. Each year, a Summer Course and a Winter School take place, offering intensive weeks of seminars dedicated to a specialized issue in human rights, with the participation of both international and foreign faculty.

The doctorate also provides for the possibility of carrying out research in co-supervision with a tutor from a foreign university, allowing for the possibility of achieving a PhD title equaly valid in the country in question (following a defense of the thesis in the latter country as well).
