Human Rights

Ahead of their field research, students follow three types of seminars. First they are trained on the specific methodology of human rights taking into account legal sources, and identifying duty bearers and rights holders. This seminar’s goal is to allow them to measure observance and violations of rights, but also to report on them. A seminar with experts with field experience then follows. Its aim is to provide lessons from the field and testify to the ethical challenges and practical challenges of field work. The last seminar allows students to build a research questionnaire and test its ethical, scientific and practical value.

Practical Human Rights


During the course of the first semester, students get to participate in several short field visits to research centres, and NGOs, meeting with experts and professionals who work on the Master’s key issues: Women’s Rights, Children’s Rights, Rights to Education, LGBTIs, Detainee Rights, Memory of War and Reconciliation, Refugees, Electoral Reform, etc). These visits allow the observation of the work of professionals, researchers and activists, and allow students to look into the specific context, opportunities, needs and challenges linked to specific rights.

Field Visits


The field trip is a team project including all ARMA students in collaboration with professors and experts.

  • It is a unique occasion to develop students’ professional and research skills.
  • It provides an important learning experience in the field.
  • It gives students an opportunity to learn:

    How to build research questions and research designs,

    Qualitative and quantitative research techniques,

    Data collections and analysis

  • Field trip results are presented by the team in a public conference.

Development and Implementation

Students implement a project as a team from A to Z.

  • The project is built around the need of a local community.
  • Students look around, do an assessment and hold a brainstorming session with relevant stakeholders to pick their project.
  • Students scout for funds.
  • Students prepare, implement, monitor and assess your project.
