The European Regional Master’s Programme in Democracy and Human Rights in South East Europe (ERMA) is an interdisciplinary program coordinated by the University of Sarajevo, Center for Interdisciplinary Studies and the University of Bologna. Students attending this program have an opportunity to study in an international environment, an participate in lectures and workshops held over by 40 professors and experts.

ERMA is designed for students who want to combine their learning with field and practical research in human rights and democratization. Since human rights and democracy both appear in different fields of studies, such as social sciences, political science, sociology, law, and philosophy, the program integrates an interdisciplinary approach within all subjects covered. The curriculum of the program is based on the variety of topics, including foundations of human rights, nationalism, identity and conflict, democratization and EU integration, international human rights norms and standards, mechanisms of human rights protection and implementation, and research methodologies.

Besides attending lectures at the University of Sarajevo, students also undertake a 6 weeks internship in one of the South East European countries. Additionally, to enhance cultural diversity students spend 45 days at the University of Bologna Residential Center of Bertinoro, where they complete their master thesis.
