Since 2012, the Vienna Master of Arts in Human Rights has combined diverse disciplines with students from a multitude of academic and professional backgrounds thus pioneering interdisciplinary human rights education. Students of the Vienna Master programme were taught how to identify human rights issues and acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to effectively address them. The focus of their studies was not only on existing legal frameworks but also on applying an interdisciplinary approach, understanding underlying dynamics and factors and developing multi-level strategies to overcome these issues. It is from the development of these skills that this volume takes its name, Confronting Challenges. The present volume contains a selection of the best theses of the Vienna Master´s fifth generation alumni. They cover varied and timely human rights issues, ranging from the rights of old(er) persons, the lived experiences of sex workers, reproductive medicine legislation relevant for LGBTIAQ+ persons, childhood statelessness in Europe to the exploitation of talibés in Mauritania.
Biografische Anmerkung
Herausgeber*innen: Kaitlyn Rice / Laura Alberti Autor*innen: Laura Alberti Laura Alberti holds a bachelor degree in Japanese Studies and a master degree in Human Rights from the University of Vienna, which she graduated with distinction. She completed her internship at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Human Rights giving her first experience in crowdfunding, project development, content management and research. After her graduation, she gained a business perspective by building and growing an enterprise, in so doing, developing practical skills in entrepreneurship and management. She is currently responsible for the Programme Management of the Vienna Master of Arts in Human Rights and is the coordinator for Commission 2 of the Austrian Ombudsman Board, the Austrian National Preventive Mechanism under OPCAT. This master thesis reflects her belief in the universality of human rights and the immense personal and professional value of considering different perspectives. Flore Beaumond After graduating with a Masters in International Relations from the Université Libre de Bruxelles and LUISS Guido Carli in Rome, I attended the Master in Human Rights at the University of Vienna. During this time, I conducted an internship at the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) in Vienna and with the International Labour Office (ILO) in Nouakchott on child protection. The time I spent at the International Labor Office in Mauritania was an eye-opening experience that exposed me to the efforts that go into child protection. It was after this that my desire to study the subject more in detail arose; it is a subject that is dear to my heart. After witnessing daily the terrible living conditions of many talibés in the city, I could not stop raising all kinds of questions in my mind: Why are these children alone? Where will they sleep tonight? Where do they come from? Do they go to school? How does the Mauritanian society perceive this situation? What actions are taken to address this visible issue? I quickly realised the complexity of the problem and how the social, cultural and religious taboos towards talibés has resulted in only a few academic research projects that address their condition. I also learned of what little political action is undertaken to protect this vulnerable group of society. After my Master in Human Rights, I went to Japan to join Ashoka in Tokyo, a small NGO that is part of a global platform, which identifies and supports social entrepreneurs worldwide. I returned to Brussels in September 2019 to take on the role of a trainee project assistant at the Egmont Institute. Here we support the Education and Training Program, which manages a variety of projects that are financed by the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Belgian Cooperation & Development Agency. The Program develops and organises trainings for foreign diplomats so they can build partnerships with foreign administration schools. Cocoa Costales Cocoa joined the Vienna Master of Arts in Human Rights in 2016. Her internship period included a four-month placement with the New Zealand Prostitutes Collective in New Zealand/Aotearoa, where she conducted her thesis research; and four months in Australia interning with Scarlet Alliance, the national peek sex workers association, and the Sex Workers Outreach Project NSW, a peer-led, community-based health organisation. Since then, she has worked as a research manager on a national mixed-methods study with the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality; as a consultant for Front Line Defenders; and served on the board of directors of the Sex Workers Outreach Project USA. She currently works in community em
