International Children’s Rights (Advanced LL.M.)


An important component of this master consists of extracurricular activities.

During this programme, you will have the opportunity to participate in a number of extracurricular activities, which will be largely financed by the Master’s Programme, that will enhance your studies, such as:

  • Study trip to Geneva - The programme includes a class study trip to Geneva to attend a session of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child and to meet with other international organisations operating in the international arena on issues relating to children’s rights. It is a unique opportunity for students to witness first-hand the interactions between States’ representatives and the Committee on the Rights of the Child on the implementation, successes and challenges in making children’s rights a reality in practice.
  • Monthly Meetings - The programme also establishes a “Monthly Meeting” tradition: an extra-curricular forum to address topical issues impacting the lives of children in an interactive atmosphere and with experts who are familiar with the realities “on the ground”. Students are encouraged to have an active role in the Monthly Meeting’s planning and topic selection.
  • Class field trips - Many of the programme’s courses include class field trips to international, regional and national organisations and bodies, based in the Netherlands. Such trips include, meetings at the International Criminal Court (ICC), the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH), UNICEF The Netherlands, and many more. The programme also aims to introduce students to the realities on the ground, and has organized class excursions to relevant insitutions for children (for example, specialized police units, institution for juvenile delinquents, etc.).
