Deadline: 30 June 2019
The Global Campus of Human Rights has launched the second edition of its most successful Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Gender-Based Violence in the Context of Migration.
This MOOC provides participants with knowledge, multiple perspectives and examples of practices that can help them develop and reinforce their critical understanding and effective action in a field that is at the crossroads of gender, migration and human rights studies.
The course is offered on OpenEdX, the open source platform of EdX which is one of the leading providers of open online learning. With a user-friendly and innovative interface, this course offers an interactive and engaging learning experience without geographical limitations, allowing participants to enjoy being part of a truly global network of experts and committed human rights defenders.
On completion of the course, participants will be able to gain:
- Knowledge of international developments, legal instruments and practices to prevent, combat and eradicate GBV.
- Knowledge about GBV concerns associated with the gender-related dimensions of forced and economic migration.
- Insights on the role of key actors, and the challenges they are facing in enforcing and promoting a violence- and fear-free world.
The course encompasses a 6-week period. Participants are expected to engage in approximately 30 hours of active learning through readings, videos, discussions, group-work/role-plays and quizzes.
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.
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.
The online course is free and open to participants (students, practitioners, social workers…) from all over the world who are actively interested and engaged in gender, migration and human rights studies and wish to deepen their knowledge about their interplay at different levels.
