The Straniak Academy for Democracy and Human Rights was recently established by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights – Research Association in Vienna in cooperation with the Faculties of Law and Political Science/Sociology of the Universities of Vienna and Podgorica/Montenegro, and bears the name of the main sponsor, the Hermann and Marianne Straniak Foundation. The Academy will take place for the first time from 8 to 21 September 2013 in the wonderful historic city of Budva on the Montenegrin coast.
Aim of the Academy

Concept and Programme
Thirty students from the region and EU member states will have the unique opportunity to work with experienced professors, practitioners and regional and international experts and to discuss important issues on democracy and human rights. Lessons will be held in the morning and in the afternoon, followed by evening discussions and round tables. There will also be enough time to enjoy the sea and to explore the Montenegrin coast!
Certificates and credits
Students will get a certificate of the Academy. The participating University Faculties will decide on the respective credits to be awarded.
