Overview

Engage with human rights practice by linking the legal, theoretical and technical skills and knowledge needed to work for international organisations fighting injustice, oppression and persecution.

You will study contemporary debates in human rights promotion and protection, researching the stories of violations, asylum, surveillance, peacekeeping and torture that are behind many of today's news headlines.

Working with your tutors and alongside industry professionals, you will develop the skills to be able to investigate claims of human rights abuses, gather evidence and build cases for legal proceedings.

Your course will also hone your research and project management skills and develop your ability to write compelling funding applications and formulate budgets - essential requirements for a career in this area.

Created in collaboration with tutors from the University's Leeds Law School, your course will provide you with the expertise and practical skills to help protect human rights and tackle abuses.

You will learn from a highly-skilled and research-active teaching team who are experts in human rights law and practice, security, peace studies, evidence-gathering and crime investigation.

Our team of academics include Dr Steve Wright, an expert on torture technologies and surveillance employed by governments across the world, Dr Robin Redhead an expert on indigenous people and women's rights, Professor Eddie Halpin who is Chair of HURIDOCS, the Geneva-based human rights information and documentation centre and Dr Rachel Julian who was invited by the international NGO Nonviolent Peaceforce to evaluate their project in Georgia using unarmed civilian peace-keepers.

Other tutors have worked closely with organisations such as Amnesty International, CND, the UN and the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict. Guest lectures will provide you with the chance to engage with professionals working in the field, ensuring your course is at the cutting-edge of human rights practice. Recent speakers include Andrew Gilligan, London Editor of The Sunday Telegraph, Tony Bunyan, Director of Statewatch and Stephen Bowen, Director of the British Institute of Human Rights.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

Critically explore what is meant by international human rights law and critically evaluate its purpose and application. You will assess the role and function of the United Nations, studying the law as embodied by UN international human rights treaties and legal principles as defined by customary international law and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Consider how projects fit within organisations, and how they are developed, funded and managed. You will study the essential components of project management, including planning, evaluation, ethics and governance issues, and stakeholder engagement. You will develop key skills in project management, funding applications and communication using authentic sources and case studies.

Explore the theorisation of Human Rights within International Relations debates. You will explore the contested conceptualisation of Human Rights, via universalist/relativist and cosmopolitan/communitarian debates, and locate the theorisation of rights within the broad schools of International Relations thought. You will also explore the tensions that emerge through the institutionalisation of rights at an international level, the operation of sovereignty and the politics of rights at a group and individual level.

Engage in critical depth with a research-based project aligned to your personal interests and professional aspirations. You will gain general training on research methods leading to workshops that will support you to develop a proposal appropriate for masters level, grounded in theory and with appropriate methodological and ethical considerations.

Discuss the history, techniques and law applicable to Civil and Military Forces intelligence and evidence gathering via interrogation activities that take place in the context of security operations. You will gain a broad overview of the history and international practice amongst civil and military forces from around the world. You will then explore what amounts to torture, inhuman and/or degrading treatment and the legal, ethical and moral arguments surrounding those concepts today. You will examine the social and psychological research to understand what motivates torturers to act as they do and look at those who may be complicit in facilitating torture e.g. medical staff.

You will gain insight, debate and practical strategies in the field of the protection of civilians from violence on a local, national and international level. This is increasingly becoming a central concern for international interventions, but on the local level innovative projects are being supported. From understanding the roles of international agencies, NGOs and local organisations, to investigating strategies and tactics of those affected, this module will enable you to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions and the way in which it fits with peace and conflict theory and human rights.

Critically explore acts of war, political violence and 'crimes of aggression' through the lens of criminological discourse. You will gain an in-depth critical understanding of war and its relationship with 'crime'; by critically evaluating the role of individual states, international communities, as well as victims, bystanders and known perpetrators or combatants.

Gain an understanding of contemporary security theory and challenges, and how this has evolved from a focus on the state to incorporate human security. You will examine the roles of key actors, agencies, policies and interventions are examined. You will look at responses to traditional and new security threats from a human rights perspective, including case studies on terrorism, new forms of warfare and climate change.
