MOOC on gender-based violence in the context of migration
The Global Campus of Human Rights (GC) is launching the second edition of its most successful Massive Open Online Course 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.
Course dates: 10 June – 21 July 2019
The programme is structured 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 Gender-Based Violence (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 analysed 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.
The MOOC is led by a team of Global Campus Professors from the EMA and APMA Regional Masters in Human Rights and Democratisation: Teresa Pizarro Beleza, of NOVA New University of Lisbon, Kalliope Agapiou-Josephides, of the University of Cyprus and Nicola Piper, of Queen Mary University of London and formerly with the University of Sidney. They are joined in the teaching by an international faculty of academics, experts and practitioners, including: Pablo Ceriani Cernadas, former Vice-Chairperson of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Migrant Workers and Their Families (CMW); François Crépeau, former United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants; Ryszard Cholewinski, Senior Migration Specialist in ILO’s Regional Office for Arab States in Beirut.
