Best MA Thesis

This rubric lists selected top MA theses produced by students of the OSCE Academy. MA thesis is an independent research work that each student has to complete in order to successfully graduate from the graduate programmes of the Academy. Topics are selected by students independently, while thesis supervisors provide assistance during the process of writing.

Below are the best of the MA theses of both MA programmes selected in the latest round of theses defences. More theses will be uploaded as new cohorts of students graduate every year.
