HUMAN RIGHTS PROGRAM
The Human Rights Program’s mission is to enable all people to equally enjoy their Human Rights, including the rights as defined with the International Human Rights Law. Our vision is to conduct high-quality legal and policy research and analysis, provide policy advice to policy makers, design tools and conduct other activities (including capacity building, promotion of and cooperation for Human Rights) stirred towards Human Rights protection, promotion and advancement. Our imperative is that these must be conducted by maintaining high methodological standards, accompanied by a proper reading of the international Human Rights standards and benefiting from the use of comparative practices (context permitting) not just Europe-wide but also worldwide.
NEW MEDIA AND SOCIETY
This program has the goal to facilitate the process of development of civic skills through creative media and audiovisual materials. Through the promotion of non-formal education methods relevant to democratic citizenship and European values, Studiorum’s numerous actions strive for effective mechanisms of human rights protection, constantly encouraging the public to use its own willpower and information to build active European citizenry.
