Become part of LSE! Join the largest Department of Gender Studies in Europe.

This research-led MSc teaching programme in Gender (Rights and Human Rights) aims to provide students with an in-depth knowledge of the epistemological, conceptual, and empirical contexts in which gender and human rights operate and circulate around the globe.

You’ll benefit from:

  • An independent and critical approach to the scholarly study of the entangled politics, histories and practices of gender and human rights.
  • An introduction to a range of critical thinking, especially, anticolonial, decolonial, postcolonial and interventions from radical democratic theories with a view to engage students in questions of decolonisation, human rights and transnational gender politics.
  • Developing an intersectional, transnational but also an interdisciplinary gender lens to study rights and global human rights.
