Masterclasses

Amnesty offers Masterclasses for students about various human rights issues. A Masterclass is usually a combination of a lecture and an interactive part, in which you’ll be put to work, through a case study. It’s is a great way to gain more knowledge about human rights, learn about your student opportunities at Amnesty and meet other students! Masterclasses are open to students working in different disciplines and will be held in English. Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required. For more information or requests, please contact masterclass@amnesty.nl.
