Ana María Ríos

Colombia | Graduated in 2020

Thoughts on the programme: This Master programme includes a well-rounded approach to Human Rights, examining it not only from the legal perspective but from other disciplines and on both a regional and an international level. Also, this program allows exchange with professionals from all over the world, being able to have a multicultural study experience.

The professors have vast knowledge and experience in the Human Rights field, making every class an opportunity to enhance through an encouraging and supportive learning environment. The structure of the program is very coherent and allows us from the second semester to choose the subjects of interest of each one.

Professional background: I worked for the United Nations Office against Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in Colombia. I applied qualitative and quantitative methodologies for the analysis of drug trafficking. I organised crime dynamics at the local level to identify risks related to criminal networks, among which are highlighted, human trafficking, smuggling of migrants and homicide.
