New Masters course in slavery and liberation

We are now offering an exciting new MA in slavery and liberation. The course will be taught by world-leading academics and experts and will introduce students to slavery, liberation and human rights.

Professor Kevin Bales from the School of Politics and International Relations says: “We all want to end slavery and support freed slaves, but how do we do that? Sooner or later, everyone in the world of human rights and anti-slavery asks this question. This is the question whenever we face the tough challenges of liberation and reintegration, and this hunger for knowledge is not surprising, given that there has been no professional training and education programme for anti-slavery scholars, activists or workers – until now.

“This MA is designed to prepare students for both future study and to equip them with the skills needed by anti-slavery and anti-trafficking organisations. Its true aim is to answer the fundamental question of how we can work together to end slavery and how best to support freed slaves.”

This course will be available for the 2017/18 academic year.
