The course is articulated in three modules:

  • Module 1 starts with a discussion on real-life examples of violations of the human rights of migrant and refugee women and girls and then goes on to introduce key concepts, definitions and elements of GBV with attention to the development of the international discourse and related human rights instruments on the topic.
  • Module 2 is dedicated to the interplay of migration, gender and violence analyzed through a human rights lens and examples from different regions of the world.
  • Module 3 concludes the course with a look at practical implications, challenges but also positive examples and opportunities for change.

Target Audience

This course is for ‘leaders of the future’ who envision a world where cross-border movement is free from GBV: upper year undergraduates; postgraduates; NGO activists and practitioners interested in interdisciplinary human rights, gender equality, women empowerment, migration; young lawyers and social scientists; active and motivated citizens from around the world.
