Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses and Scholarships
What courses it is available?
The programme supports top standard Master’s degree courses. A list of participating programmes can be found here.
The Fellows are based at the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in Geneva, Switzerland. The programme is an inter-active process, which consists of briefings on several topics (OHCHR’s mandate and activities, the UN system, Human Rights instruments and mechanisms, including those more specifically dealing with indigenous issues) and individual and group assignments.
Fellows will also have the opportunity to receive training/briefing sessions with other UN and specialized agencies (ILO, WIPO, UNESCO, UNDP, UNITAR) and with other international organizations and Geneva based Human Rights NGOs.
At the end of the Programme, each Fellow will have a general knowledge on the United Nations system, international human rights instruments and mechanisms, in particular those relevant to indigenous peoples and be capable of giving training sessions within their communities/organizations on the knowledge acquired.
Fellows attending the English speaking component of the programme are entitled to the following: a return ticket (economy class) from the country of residence to Geneva; modest accommodation in Geneva for the duration of the Programme; basic health insurance for the duration of the Programme; a monthly grant to cover other living expenses in Geneva.
In 2012, the English linguistic component of the IFP will run from 11 June to 13 July and fellows will be able to participate in the session of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Participants to the 2012 English linguistic component of the IFP are still in the process of being identified.
Please note that the deadline to receive applications for the 2013 English speaking programme is: Tuesday 1 May 2012.
