SUSTJUSTICE is embedded into the English Master of Laws (LLM) taught at the Faculty of Law of the University of Antwerp.
The programme combines it's primary focus on law with a inter-disciplinary approach that takes into account the complex nature of the topic. Additionally, it brings together the knowledge and exptertise of the Global South and the Global North for a unique educational experience. SUSTJUSTICE is comprised of four compulsory courses: International Law and Sustainable Development, Human Rights and Global Justice, Law in Developing Countries and External Actors in Aid, Trade and Investment. In a period of 11 intensive weeks, the teaching combines theoretical insights in the classroom with practical assignments such as role-plays, negotiations, moot-courts and writing assignments such as policy briefs and short academic papers. This methodology is aimed at preparing the participants to be change-catalysts in their professional life and in their communities.
In the past four years, the programme has attracted a diverse student body with participants from all over the globe. This diversity is also reflected in the teaching team which includes leading experts from the North and South who discuss salient features of their disciplines, and encourage students to reflect upon key challenges in the area of sustainable development and global justice.

Master of Arts in European Politics, Economics and Law
Institute for European Studies, University of Malta The MA in European, Economics and Law provides a strong foundation in European Studies. It includes compulsory study-units in these subject areas and a wide range of elective study-units on key topics, including lobbying in the EU, EU treaties and laws, the politics and economics of European Integration, the EU’s external relations, EU cohesion policy, climate change and current political and economic developments.
The course is taught on a seminar basis and is intended to further deepen students' knowledge of European politics, law and economics so that by the end of the course they can rightly claim to be ‘specialised generalists’ i.e. graduates with a broad knowledge of the EU but with a deeper specialised understanding in particular areas. The aim is to encourage students to develop their analytical and critical skills – something which is aided by the way the seminars are structured.
This programme of study is also offered on a part-time basis.
Start Date: October

The program equips graduates with the conceptual knowledge and hard skills that are necessary for understanding and decisively intervening in contemporary transnational policy problems, from climate change to international terrorism or financial regulatory failure. It provides a detailed and systematic understanding of how political institutions, processes and public policies operate and interact from the global political economy through to national and local levels with a direct focus on European engagements at these levels of governance. Inter-disciplinarity and practical application of conceptual knowledge are hallmarks of Mundus MAPP.
Program structure and mobility tracks Mundus
MAPP is unique in the flexibility with which students can tailor their learning experiences to their individual needs through the selection of mobility tracks. Mobility tracks in the joint degree each allow for a different focus – Political Economy and Development, Governance and Development, Global Public Policy and European Public Policy – while maintaining a uniform core of policy studies subjects.

Global Diversity Governance MPA
Centre for Trust Peace and Social Relations (CTPSR) Diversity within very local communities is growing as our world becomes more interconnected and our markets more globalised. Within this increased complexity the need to understand diversity, its impact and consequences is ever more crucial. The way we deal with differences between people is a key variable in almost every sphere of modern life and of particular relevance for public and private management. Managing diversity and capturing its benefits is a key challenge for contemporary societies. It is as important for secure and stable cities as for successful and profitable companies, and especially critical for public services managers with heavily constrained expenditures.
The MPA Global Diversity Governance builds upon the global understanding and practical expertise that Coventry University, through the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations (CTPSR), has developed in the fields of intercultural relations, social cohesion and diversity around the world. It is a programme that rises to the challenges of managing diversity and is designed to support professionals from around the world who are responsible for service design and delivery that must take full account of an unprecedented level of diversity in their communities, workplaces and families.
The MPA brings together experienced, mid- and senior-career professionals from different countries and regions, as a collaborating and diverse group with global and local perspectives, to learn from leading experts and active researchers from across the social and political sciences. The programme is open to professionals with the requisite qualifications looking to more effectively understand and confront the challenges of diverse societies and manage lasting, positive social change in their own local areas.
The global political and economic environment is changing and a new and very different geo-political reality is emerging. The MPA has been desig
