The E.MA is primarily financed through the EIUC by the European Union.* The Region of Veneto also provides substantial funding. The EIUC premises are made available and managed by the Municipality of Venice. The E.MA enjoys the collaboration with UNESCO, the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, GTZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit), Fundación Tres Culturas in Seville, La Biennale di Venezia, and benefits from the close cooperation of the Council of Europe, the OSCE, and other international organisations.
The Master’s Programme is further enriched by the input given by representatives of non-governmental organisations such as the International Committee of the Red Cross, Human Rights Watch, the International Commission of Jurists, and the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims. All mentioned organisations are members of the EIUC/E.MA Advisory Board, thus providing their expertise to the E.MA management on a continuous basis.
