We are delighted that Francesca has been awarded the TJI Scholarship 2021 to support her participation on the LLM Human Rights Law and Transitional Justice.

According to Francesa:“I am truly grateful for the support of the Transitional Justice Institute Scholarship.Moving to Belfast alone, as an international student, was much less daunting knowing that I have the Transitional Justice Institute to support me academically, professionally and financially. It is truly an honour to have been selected as this year’s scholar.I am a full-time student on the LLM in Human Rights Law and Transitional Justice. I also teach part-time in a public law school in the Philippines. I have been teaching Natural Resources and Environmental Law, as well as Humanitarian Law in Armed Conflicts, for the last two years. During my year at the Institute, I hope to establish professional networks and enrich my knowledge of International Human Rights Law and Transitional Justice.”

The course director Dr Thomas Hansen adds:“The scholarship is important because it provides financial support to skilled students, and carries a level of prestige which may potentially advance recipients’ career paths. It further supports the agenda of TJI, including attracting talent to LLM programmes.”If you are interested in applying for the TJI Scholarship in 2022 check out
