The Venice Academy of Human Rights is an international programme of excellence for human rights education, research and debate. It forms part of the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC).
The Academy offers interdisciplinary thematic programmes open to academics, practitioners, doctoral and master students with an advanced knowledge of human rights. Participants attend morning lectures, participate in discussion sessions and workshops and can exchange views, ideas and arguments with leading international scholars and experts.
This includes the opportunity for a number of participants to present and discuss their own 'work in progress' such as drafts of articles, chapters of books or doctoral theses and receive comments from faculty members (including P. Alston, A. Føllesdal, G. Ulfstein and J. Waldron) and peers.
The theme of this year’s academy is ‘Judicial Legitimacy and the Rule of Law’.
At the end of the programme, participants receive a Certificate of Attendance issued by the Venice Academy of Human Rights.
The Venice Academy of Human Rights does not offer an introduction to human rights.
It provides a forum for the exchange, challenge and innovation of ideas and expertise for participants who are at an advanced stage of their career.
Online applications are accepted until 4 May 2014.
The Academy offers an 'early bird' registration with a reduced participation fee until 15 March 2014.
