Italy Justice & Human Rights Study Abroad Program

May 12-29, 2017 | Application Deadline: February 10, 2017 | Learn More and Apply | Contact

The University of South Mississippi is sponsoring a study abroad program in Italy, with applications currently open for undergraduate and graduate students. The focus of the program is on human rights of African migrants in Italy and the Italian criminal justice system. Italy is a priority destination for migrants due to Italy’s island of Lampedusa being one of the closest European locations to North Africa. The intersection between migration, human rights, and criminal justice is also prominent throughout the peninsula. Students will have a chance to meet migrants and hear from Italians who focus on their human rights, as well as individuals involved in the justice system. The program will take place in Perugia and in Florence at the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights and a few days in Rome.
