Thoughts on the programme: The interdisciplinary nature of the human rights master programme was the main reason why I chose this programme as my second master. I think having deep insight needs a multilateral understanding and human rights studying is the one in the deep need of the multidimensional perception. I confirm that the program of human rights master in FAU fulfils this need.
The methodological and scientific approach of this programme, including obligatory and elective aspects of human rights which is multidimensional, makes it highly worthwhile to spend two years studying. Additionally, and significantly, the eminent professors who have the crucial key role in the quality of the programme are accurately chosen and implement their jobs perfectly for the goals of this programme. Moreover, being with multinational colleagues is a unique opportunity for increasing experience and friendship.
Professional background: I am a PhD candidate at FAU, under the supervision of Professor Bielefeldt in the field of women’s rights in Iran with focussing on Islamic feminism. My first bachelor is in Literature, and I was a teacher in my country. Working with teen girls and their mothers at schools in poor areas made me more sensitive about the terrific impact of the failure in the domestic laws of my country. It motivated me to study Law, so, I got my second bachelor in law. I started working for NGOs in their legal teams, educational teams and women empowering part while I still was working as a teacher. My first master’s thesis in public international law is about the right to education and the State’s obligation, and I focussed on the children who are deprived of education in my country. I also started teaching in a university as a visiting lecturer in the different subjects of public international law, including human rights. My second master’s thesis in the human rights program is about child marriage in Iran. My goal is to broaden and strengthen my knowledge in finding the best peaceful way to reform the domestic laws in favour of women’s rights towards helping the development in my country.
