The Master in Global Affairs is opening its doors to incoming students in Strasbourg, France and at its newest branch in Charlottetown, Canada. This program was designed by the Council on International Law and Politics and the University Rey Juan Carlos (Madrid, Spain).

The Master in Global Affairs integrates rigorous coursework under the supervision of a multi-disciplinary faculty. Students will have the support of policymakers, members of international courts, members of NGOs, and with an international network of students. We are proud of our strong partnership with the UN under the United Nations Academic Impact program. The program in Strasbourg will focus on the work of European Institutions and the protection of human rights in Europe. The classes will be complemented by numerous public meetings and forums held in Strasbourg by the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights, and the European Parliament. 

In the classroom, you’ll engage with a range of government officials, leaders of nongovernmental organizations, journalists, business and religious leaders, advocates and activists from both civil societies and social movements, and scholars with expertise in global issues.

This nine-month, professional degree is offered by the Rey Juan Carlos University, as a Master-Titulo Propio. It will provide you with competent and effectual leadership skills while preparing you for careers in multilateral institutions, government and nongovernmental organizations, civil societies, and for various careers in the private sector. We will prepare you for a high impact career in policymaking and peacebuilding with a focus on working towards a sustainable world. The Master in Global Affairs operates under the themes of a respect for human rights, democracy, and the rule of law.


“Human rights and fundamental freedoms always need to be protected, as you know. To declare them is not enough: we all have to be actively involved in their promotion and implementation. If you want to face this challenge building a world based on a real respect of human rights, join the Master in Global Affairs!” Guido Bellatti Ceccoli (Ambassador, Permanent Representative to the Council of Europe chez Republic of San Marino)

Yet, we seem to be taking two steps forward and one step back, if not two or three steps back, in whatever we do. Are you going to be part of the problem or part of the solution? “.
