The European Regional Master's Programme in Democracy and Human Rights in South East Europe (ERMA) is a one year, full time, interdisciplinary programme. It is a joint initiative by the University of Sarajevo, Center for Interdisciplinary Studies (CIS) and the University of Bologna. ERMA is co-financed by the European Union through the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratization (EIUC) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy via the Embassy of the Republic of Italy to Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is implemented in Sarajevo and Bologna, thus students receive diplomas from both universities (UNSA and UNIBO). The programme awards 60 ECTS.
ERMA is an academic educational activity intended for students who wish to combine studies with practical and field research experience in human rights and democratization issues. Recognizing that human rights are a crosscutting theme among different disciplines of study, such as political science, social sciences, law, sociology and philosophy, ERMA fosters strong interdisciplinary approach. Enrolled students have the benefit of studying in a highly international environment together with colleagues from all over the region, European Union and rest of the world, attending lectures and workshops held by over 40 professors from 12 partner universities: University of Bologna, Italy; University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina; University of Belgrade, Serbia; Karl Franzens University of Graz, Austria; University of the Ruhr, Germany; University of Peloponnese, Greece; University of Zagreb, Croatia; New Bulgarian University, Bulgaria; University Ss. Cyril and Methodius, Macedonia; Higher School of Economics - National Research University, Moscow, Russia; and University of Pristina, Kosovo; and University of Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
