About the program:
The International Human Rights Law in Argentina program aims to provide you with the knowledge and tools necessary to enable a critical analysis of complex problems such as judicial independence, transnational justice, military dictatorship and amnesty laws.

  • La Poderosa (a shanty town)
  • Former clandestine detention centre
  • Remembrance park ( Parque de la Memoria)
  • Weekend trip to Iguazu Falls (domestic flights included in the program fee)
** Details to the program are still subject to final change **

Location profile:
Argentina is a vast natural wonderland, with the Iguazu falls in the north to the Glaciar Perito Moreno in the south. It is full of stunning sights and adventures just waiting to be experienced. Tango and Futbol (soccer) are things that the Argentines are passionately devoted about. Food is also a culinary journey within Buenos Aires especially; there is a variety of ethnic cuisine from Southeast Asia and Middle Eastern to Scandinavian. Juicy and perfectly grilled steaks are big on the menu, with Parillas (Steak Houses) everywhere.
The city of Buenos Aires, which is located on the banks of the famous River Plate, is undoubtedly the big cosmopolitan entrance to South America. It is a metropolis with boundless energy combining tradition and innovation in its architecture, fashion and art. Like Europe with a melancholic twist, Buenos Aires is unforgettable.
Rounded by its legendary pampas, Buenos Aires gives room to a third of the 40 million Argentineans. Those who decide to study in Buenos Aires will also be able to experience the city: tour its elegant streets and avenues with Parisian 19th century-architectural style, get to know its neighbourhoods and suburbs where all the identities are linked with some national passion such as tango, soccer and politics.
