Meng-Ting Hsieh, a recent graduate from National Chengchi University in Taiwan with a major in Public Administration and a minor in Diplomacy, says:
“I believe behind every human rights violation, there is a story waiting to be told. I am eager to learn more about human rights – specifically when it comes to raising public awareness on certain issues. I look forward to presenting what I know to the world, so as to help the voiceless seek justice.”
The Human Rights LLM has a strong conflict dimension, with courses on how to deal with the past in countries emerging from conflict (Transitional Justice) and how human rights protections can assist processes of conflict resolution (Human Rights and Conflict Resolution). This enables graduates to make a tangible impact on conflict resolution in their future roles either in their home countries or others.
