Course Description

Women and girls make up around half of the 244 million migrants and 21.3 million refugees in the world. For them cross-border movement often comes with heightened risks than for men. Addressing the root causes of forced and economic migration and ensuring that the human rights of women and girls are protected throughout the migration process are essential steps towards a stronger recognition of their equal dignity.

Drawing from expertise and examples at the global and regional level, this MOOC provides participants with multiple perspectives and examples of practices in a field that is at the crossroads of gender, migration and human rights studies.

The course is divided into three modules:

Module 1 Gender-based violence

  • Week 1: GBV as a global challenge (focus on migration)
  • Week 2: Conceptual and empirical approaches on GBV
  • Week 3: GBV treaties and regional comparison

Module 2 Migration, gender and violence

Objectives

On completion of the course, participants will be able to gain:

  • Insights on international developments concerning GBV and migration and associated key challenges.
  • Knowledge of international legal instruments to prevent, combat and eradicate GBV.
  • Understanding about the GBV challenges associated with the gender-related dimensions of refugee status, asylum, nationality and statelessness at each stage of the displacement cycle.
  • Awareness about the role of key actors, and the challenges they are facing in enforcing and promoting a violence- and fear-free world.

Prerequisite: Previous knowledge of gender studies, international law and human rights may facilitate the learning.


Target Audience: We designed this course 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.


Course is funded by the European Commission and offered by the Global Campus of Human Rights coordinated by the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC).
