The Ceremony of the Awarding of Diplomas of the European Master’s Programme in Human Rights and Democratisation (EMA) for the academic year 2016/2017 and inauguration of the class of 2017/2018, was held at the beautiful Scuola Grande di San Rocco in Venice on Sunday, 24 September 2017, at 16.00.
The Ceremony was dedicated to paying tribute to our dear friend and founding father of the programme and EIUC, Antonio Papisca, who sadly passed away in mid-May this year. Among the guest speakers Stavros Lambrinidis, EU Special Representative for Human Rights, and former member of the European Parliament. The Ceremony was accompanied by the ensemble Musicians for Human Rights.
