The Venice Academy of Human Rights is a centre of excellence for human rights education, research and debate. It forms part of the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC) which is a leading institution for research and education in Europe. The Venice Academy provides an enriching interdisciplinary forum for emerging ideas, practices and policy options in human rights research, education and training. The Academy hosts distinguished experts to promote critical and useful research, innovation and exchange of current knowledge.
The Academy offers interdisciplinary thematic programmes open to academics, practitioners and Ph.D./J.S.D. students from all over the world who have an advanced knowledge of human rights. A maximum of 55 participants is selected each year. Participants attend morning lectures, afternoon seminars and workshops and can exchange views, ideas and arguments with leading international scholars and other experts. This includes the opportunity to present and discuss their own "work in progress" such as drafts of articles, chapters of books or doctoral theses and other projects.
At the end of the programme, participants receive a Certificate of Attendance issued by the Venice Academy of Human Rights.
