Can a church be attacked if a sniper hid in the tower during an armed conflict? Having the Polish nationality, being tortured in a Thai prison, what rights do you have? Can you invoke them and how?

Human rights are of all times and places, they are just not recognized everywhere, nor interpreted the same in all countries. There are several human rights systems in place and, in some cases, it can leave victims and their lawyers in a situation where they have to choose which forum to go to or which system to choose to seek their justice.

In this programme, you will be trained in human rights at the international level, but also in international humanitarian law and other related fields of (international) law. You will learn about the different systems and how human rights are interpreted within these systems and in different countries.

More detailed information on the programme can be found here.

Applications should be made through the ''Admission and application'' tab on this page.

The LLM International Human Rights Law is registered under the LLM CROHO label International Law and the Law of International Organizations (60605). This is a Top Rated Programme in the Netherlands.

Juan Manuel Portilla Gonzalez
LLM International Human Rights Law

The University of Groningen is not only symbol of solid academic formation, cultural activities and sports complement this wonderful experience. Groningen is a truly life experience both inside and outside the classrooms

To study abroad was not a new experience for me when I decided to do my LLM programme in Groningen; but without a doubt it has been the best choice I could have made. As an international law student to study in the Netherlands offers you a wide scope of opportunities. Most of the top international tribunals have their seat here...
The University of Groningen is not only symbol of solid academic formation, cultural activities and sports complement this wonderful experience. Groningen is a truly life experience both inside and outside the classrooms. How does it sound to you to live in an International Student House with 320 people from different nationalities and cultures? The first time I heard about the University I had my doubts about why they are awarded as the most welcoming university in the Netherlands, now I fully understand. Ever since your application procedure, the staff will guide you; and do not feel silly asking questions, believe me, I had many and they helped me a lot! Currently I am applying for an internship in the International Criminal Court in The Hague, which will help to achieve my academic and professional goals. I need to say no more, you have to live the Groningen experience!
