Starting on 1 October 2018, this new online course is open to learners with an interest on the concept of human rights education as part of the Global Education context, willing to focus in its practice while exploring its dilemmas and challenges.
At the end of this four-week course learners will be able to:

Since 2009, the North-South Centre has trained over 1500 learners from more than 50 countries through a series of online training courses, which cover three different dimensions of global education: human rights, intercultural dialogue, and democratic citizenship. Each course takes place twice a year and lasts for four weeks. The courses consist of both text and videos and require an active participation of 10 hours per week.
The North-South Centre, in collaboration with experts from the fields of human rights and global education, designed a course that introduces human rights education as part of the global education context, and deals with its concepts, approaches, strategies and action, by considering its interconnections between the global and local contexts.
