Master of Arts in Human Rights and Conflict Management

The Master of Arts in Human Rights and Conflict Management at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (Pisa, Italy) is designed to provide students from different cultures and backgrounds with a deep understanding of the linkages between human rights and conflict management theory and practice. The curriculum, strongly field oriented, prepares participants for working with NGOs, governments, aid agencies, the UN system and regional organisations, also operating in the context of complex emergencies and joint operations.

The Programme is divided into two didactic modules, running between mid January and the end of July 2014, followed by an internship or field experience of min. 3 and max. 6 months, starting from August 2014, and a presentation of the students' final dissertation in spring 2015.

Top Dissertation Structuring Tips

The hardest part of gaining a Master’s degree apart from the extensive research it requires is the dissertation writing process. Many students have a problem with the structuring process which, if mastered would make the whole process easy and straightforward. 

The dissertation structure is critical first because it displays the work in a way you can work easy. The structure also makes the research look live and real. It facilitates the research mapping process, which is the biggest challenge you would face without.

XVI Summer School of Economics in Belgrade

The Institute of Economic Sciences, Belgrade, is organizing the 16th annual Summer School of Economics on July 15th – July 19th 2013. It was started in 1998, triggered by the need to provide education about emerging market economy and contemporary economic trends that were excluded from the formal system of education at the time. Since the Summer School gathers students from the entire region of the Western Balkans, it not only offers students the opportunity to learn from distinguished lecturers, both from Serbia and abroad, but also the chance to meet their peers from the region, and establish friendships and networks that will be important in their future careers.
