Parties FdR

This page provides an overview on which parties are running for the FdR Faculty Student Council (FSR) and what their views are.


We are a student party at the University of Amsterdam working to increase transparency in decision-making at the institution and improve your student experience. We are diverse, curious, ambitious, and determined to bring these values to university politics. We believe in more student involvement in university politics to create a more interconnected, interactive university. We strive to close the gap between university governance and the student community through direct and transparent democracy. We aim for solutions benefiting all students at the University of Amsterdam. Five goals of Inter are: transparent and democratic decision-making, quality of education and academic flexibility, diversification of backgrounds of the student body, improved student welfare and sustainable policies and practices.


4 reasons to vote for OpRecht

  • No paternalism: Studying at our faculty increasingly feels like being back in high school. Compulsory attendance, strict thesis deadlines and mandatory digital assignments do not belong at university. 
  • More democracy and transparency: Students should be represented at all levels. Communication about important changes should be clear and timely (like new exam and retake dates). All vacancies should be made public. 
  • More decentralisation: The faculty should be able to make its own decisions, not the central board. The central board should refrain from making decisions about the content of education and research at our faculty. 
  • For all students: We strive for a more inclusive and diverse faculty and represent all students, including international students. 

De Vrije Student

De Vrije Student (The Free Student) puts students in the first place. That means that all lectures should be available online, that there should be more space in the university to study and that we are in favour of a higher teaching level in international classes. We find it important that you can evolve yourself to the utmost level during your time in college. Being a student is more than just study: it also comprehends the possibility to become a board member of your study association, to have a job next to your study or enjoy your free time in Amsterdam! We want you to be able to make use of these possibilities by giving you online lectures.

At the same time, we stand for a realistic university: of course, we are not against gender neutral toilets or vegan food in the cantina, but can the university’s money not in the first place be spent in another way? We say: first the study spaces and online lectures, and after that we can look into other subjects. That is how we distinguish ourselves from other parties.


Pacta is the brand new party for students of the Faculty of Law.

Pacta stands for academicversatile and pro-active education. Just a weekly lecture and a studygroup doens’t challenge the student in 2020. We want extracurruculair lectures from different speakers, academic trainings and debates for our students: we need to be challenged but also involved and invited to be so by our faculty.
