Founded in 2012, the Vienna Master of Arts in Human Rights pioneered an interdisciplinary programme for human rights practitioners by uniting the disciplines of history, political science, sociology, media sciences, law, psychology, philosophy and anthropology. As is suggested by the title of this volume, the second generation of the Vienna Master graduates continued this legacy. Today, they are spread around the world in a diverse range of capacities working on a multitude of projects as inspiring human rights ambassadors. Our students thus form a powerful network - a human rights family - that actively and tirelessly contributes to making the world a better place. The present volume contains a selection of the best theses of the second generation of the Vienna Master Alumni. They cover a variety of timely human rights issues, ranging from international surrogacy, child statelessness, violence against women and corruption in the health sector to young people's transition from school to work, women's access to justice, memorialisation and reconciliation.
Biografische Anmerkung
Herausgeber*innen: Leonard Cuscoleca / Marijana Grandits / Sabine Mann / Manfred Nowak / Georges Younes Autor*innen: Aline Carruet Aline has obtained a bachelor degree in Political Science at the University of Saint-Louis in Brussels. She also holds a two-year master degree in Human Rights of the University of Vienna as well as a master in International Development of the London School of Economics (LSE). Her internship at the National Council of Human Rights in Morocco was one of the triggers, which motivated her to work on this specific issue and thereby raise awareness of women's rights in Morocco. Her passion and knowledge of human rights issues can notably be reflected throughout her multiple experiences in different organizations in the field as well as at headquarters including UNICEF, UNOCHA, UNHCR, the Permanent Mission of Belgium to the UN and the International Catholic Migration Commission. Aline is currently pursuing a one-year traineeship at the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) in Vienna where she is conducting extensive desk research on various human rights issues including racism and xenophobia towards vulnerable groups within the EU and dealing with the review of the agency's research network data collection and deliverables. Sandra Gonzalez Martinez Sandra Gonzalez is a human rights lawyer in Colombia. She has a degree in Cultural Studies and postgraduate studies in Development and in Research from the Global South. In her country, she has worked as a researcher, adviser and lawyer in transitional justice issues; taking a particular interest in issues related to land rights, environmental justice, and gender justice in the context of the peace agreements between Colombia and FARC guerrilla. In the year 2013, Sandra obtained an academic scholarship at the University of Vienna to study the Master of Human Rights, thanks to which she could write the thesis that is now published. Sandra was inspired by the work of Mexican and Central American feminists, whose strategic litigation got the Inter-American Court to pronounce on the phenomenon of "feminicide". She learned first-hand about these human rights advances in her practice at CEJIL, the Centre of Justice and International Law, in Costa Rica, an organization that litigates before the Inter-American Court. After her master's degree in 2015, Sandra has worked as an advocacy officer, directly supporting Afro-descendant and indigenous movements in their struggles for land rights in southern Colombia. She is currently working on an article based on this thesis. Teresa Gruber Teresa Gruber undertook her BA in Political Science at the University of Vienna. During the MA, Teresa interned at the Department for Human Rights of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs. She wrote her thesis on child statelessness inspired by her previous experience while interning at the protection unit of UNHCR's mission to the Dominican Republic back in 2012, where she closely worked with NGOs supporting stateless population. After graduating from the VHRM, Teresa started to work for SOS-Kinderdorf (SOS Children's Villages) International Programme Department, where she is, among others, in charge of developing projects addressing child protection and prevention of family separation in diverse countries around the world.
