The Law and Development Research Group at the University of Antwerp (an LDRN founding partner) is pleased to announce the extension of the call for applications for its innovative postgraduate certificate programme on “Sustainable Development and Global Justice” (SUSTJUSTICE), which will run in conjunction with the University of Antwerp Master of Laws (LL.M) from 10 February to 30 April 2020.
Building upon four editions (2016-2019) of the Sustainable Development and Human Rights Programme (SUSTLAW), SUSTJUSTICE offers an intensive, in-depth legal training, providing both critical and contextualized insights. It brings together a diverse group of leading experts from the North and South to introduce salient features of their disciplines, and to engage students in understanding and reflecting on key challenges for sustainable development and global justice (in particular, in courses on International Law and Sustainable Development; Human Rights and Global Justice; Law in Developing Countries; and External Actors in Aid, Trade and Investment).
The programme is aimed at lawyers, scholars, and practitioners of demonstrated intellectual and academic excellence from all over the world. Participants should have at least a bachelor-level degree and a basic knowledge of human rights and international law.
Scholarships are available for 12 students belonging to the Global South, with the support of the Belgian development cooperation (VLIR-UOS).
For further information and to apply, please visit the SUSTJSUTICE website.
