Item20 Years of EMA : the European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation(Libreria Editrice Cafoscarina srl, 2017) EIUC‘Bearing in mind the principles of the International Law of Human Rights and in the spirit of inter-university cooperation, we declare open the Academic Year of the European Master’s Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation.’ These words, constituting a solemn and challenging commitment, were read out in chorus for the first time at 12 noon on 6 October 1997 in the Palazzo Ducale by rectors and professors from the universities participating in EMA, for the opening of the academic year. Every year since then, this reference to the great universal values that international human rights law has turned into principles of ius positum, has been repeated, as a confirmation of the commitment of European academia for the effectiveness of this ‘new’ law. That day in 1997 was the official start date of the original undertaking that was the European Master’s Programme. The preliminary stage had begun in the latter part of 1996 and had completed in July 1997, in Villa Herriot on Giudecca Island, when the EMA Statute, known as the Venice Charter, was adopted. We wanted to combine the contents of Article 6 of the Amsterdam Treaty, signed that same year, with the incipit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that indicates teaching and education as the most effective guarantee of human rights and fundamental freedoms. The immediate idea was to develop a new higher education project in an inter-university structure that would also serve as a more general message of integration and peace. For the first six years, the University of Padua was the legal and organisational ‘womb’ for this inspiring enterprise.
ItemAgreement on the European Master's Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation (EMA Joint Programme)( 2017-12-12) EMA ; EIUC ; University of Graz ; Ruhr University Bochum ; University of Hamburg ; University of Padua ; Ca' Foscari University of Venice ; University of Ljubljana ; University of Deusto, BilbaoWhen EMA universities decided to develop into the association EIUC, this important evolution had a fundamental impact also on the conception of the EMA degree. Upon initiative of the University of Padua, the coordinator of the programme since 1997, the degree which the university was issuing on behalf of the whole university network became a true “joint degree”, one of the first examples of joint degrees in the European academic environment in line with the Bologna process and reform surrounding the ECTS system. The Agreement, which has been also recently updated, defines the relationship among the 7 universities jointly issuing the EMA Degree – the so-called Inner Circle Universities – and regulates the special role of the University of First Enrolment, i.e. the University of Padua.
ItemEIUC Statute( 2017-02-18) EIUCEIUC was established in 2002 as natural development to the cooperation established – under the coordination of the University of Padua - between the universities organising EMA since 1997, and upon initiative of the European Union. The EIUC Statute, first signed in 2002, has come in 2017 to its latest (and most comprehensive) revision. The EIUC Statute identifies the nature of the inter-university partnership among its 38 European member universities (non-profit university association under Italian Law), the aims of the association, the composition and competence of its governing bodies, its main institutional structure and organisation, its membership and privileged cooperation with the Global Campus partners.
ItemEIUC/GC Mission and Vision( 2017-02) Global Campus of Human Rights ; EIUCThe joint vision of EIUC / Global Campus – which was adopted in February 2017 - is directed to express the network’s willingness to act and react to the increasing number of global crises and human rights challenges. At a time when some scholars and politicians speak about the end of the era of human rights, the Global Campus worldwide network has an important contribution to make in terms of strengthening of universal values of human rights, the rule of law, and democracy.
ItemMemorandum of Understanding between the City of Venice and the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation( 2011-07-15) EIUC ; Venice. CityEIUC and the City of Venice signed in 2011 an MoU which came to provide a steadier grounding for the institution, both in terms of confirming the Monastery of San Nicolò in Venice-Lido as its location, and strengthening of cooperation in the realisation of joint activities focusing on human rights and democracy. It also marked the transfer of management and direction over the premises from the Municipality itself (through its articulation Centro Soggiorni Morosini) to EIUC directly.
