“As a woman human rights defender from an ethnic minority community in Myanmar and, after 10 years of working with a local community-based organization, I have thought about pursuing advanced education to enhance my ability and skills that can help me to support my works and to be a change-maker for gender equality, democratic reform, peace and social development in my country. The Master of Arts in Human Rights program at Mahidol University was the kind of study that I have sought. MA in Human Rights ( international program) provides the best opportunity for international students and human rights activists from developing countries to learn from each other. Lecturers and professors are experts in various human rights-related fields from Thailand and beyond. My key takeaway is that MAHR course not only brings in the opportunity for us to learn theoretically in line with academic norms and standards but also to apply theories in practical settings and group projects on human rights-related issues, which stand out as one of the best academic practices that every student can experience throughout the semesters,” said Kyal Sin Thukha from Myanmar, Batch 2021.
