The Master's Degree in International Humanitarian Law, Human Rights and Operational Law is the only Official Master's Degree in Spain that trains students in Operational Law and its fusion with International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights for the legal regulation of armed conflicts.
The regulation of armed conflicts is mandatory knowledge for legal advisors who operate in conflict spaces, since a wide range of military humanitarian law is contemplated, as well as the international law of conflicts. It is worth noting the need for knowledge of International Humanitarian Law to advise various organizations regarding international crises that occur throughout the world, and at the center of which are human beings.
The program's professors maintain a relationship of academic cooperation with various international organizations such as the United Nations, the European Security Council, the Inter-American Defense Board and various institutions linked to the areas of global, strategic, military security and defense and security forces; therefore, they are actively working in the fields they teach.
The program is taught in the "distance learning" modality, so that students have the possibility of making their work and personal activities compatible with studying in the program.
