Course summary

The LLM Gender, Conflict and Human Rights draws on the established research excellence of the Transitional Justice Institute to deliver a world-leading master programme in the field. This programme has been developed to enable you to:

  • Gain a systematic understanding, in-depth knowledge and critical awareness of the differential experiences of women and men of human rights norms and institutions, especially in conflict and post-conflict situations
  • Understand foundational concepts in gender theory and their application to human rights, international law and transitional justice
  • Gain knowledge and skills in carrying out research projects from design to write-up
  • Enhance skills in critically appraising published and commissioned research
  • Develop skills highly relevant to legal practice, and to gender policy, research and advocacy roles in the voluntary, public and private sectors in the UK, Ireland and beyond
Successful completion may also open up a range of further study and research options.
