Rok za prijavu: 15.09.2022.


European Regional MA programme in Democracy and Human Rights in South East Europe (ERMA) is a one-year interdisciplinary Master’s programme coordinated by the Global Campus SEE, a joint initiative of the University of Sarajevo (UNSA), Center for Interdisciplinary Studies (CIS) and the University of Bologna (UNIBO), Department of Political and Social Sciences. Students have the benefit of studying in a highly international environment, attending lectures and workshops held by over 40 professors and experts from 11 partner universities: University of Bologna, Italy; University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina; University of Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina, University of Belgrade, Serbia; Karl Franzens University of Graz, Austria; University of the Ruhr, Germany; University of the Peloponnese, Greece; University of Zagreb, Croatia; New Bulgarian University, Bulgaria; University Ss. Cyril and Methodius, North Macedonia; and University of Pristina, Kosovo*, and other partner organisations. The Programme awards students with 60 ECTS and a double-degree diploma from both founding universities (UNSA and UNIBO).

The programme is intended for students who wish to combine studies with practical and field research experience in human rights and democratization issues. Human rights and democracy are cross-cutting themes among different disciplines of study, such as political science, social sciences, law, sociology, and philosophy, therefore ERMA fosters an interdisciplinary approach within all the subjects studied. Programme covers topics such as Foundations of human rights; Nationalism, identity and conflict; Democratisation and EU integration; International human rights norms and standards, Mechanisms of human rights protection and implementation as well as Research methodologies. Aside from attending lectures at the University of Sarajevo, students serve a 6-week internship and spend one month at the University of Bologna, Italy.

GC SEE/ERMA is a part of the Global Campus of Human Rights, a unique network of universities, seeking to advance human rights and democracy through regional and global cooperation. It provides ERMA students and alumni with several unique opportunities such as the Global Classroom, a week-long conference which brings together students and professors from all regional hubs to present their research on a topic of common interest and GC Human Rights Journal (GCHRJ), a peer-reviewed bi-annual publication serving as a forum for rigorous scholarly analysis, as well as the GC 6 month Internship stipend for the most successful student of each GC regional MA programme, boosting their employability.

The GC SEE/ERMA Programme is a highly intensive one-year master, implemented from November until the end of the October. To obtain the degree, students are required to attend and actively participate in all of the academic and practical activities. It consists of two semesters, divided into three terms.
