Annual Report 2020

Championing Education on Human Rights and Democratisation in Times of Uncertainty

In an unprecedentedly challenging year, both for human rights and for us, the Global Campus added almost 200 graduates from our seven Master’s programmes to our 4,000-plus worldwide alumni; organised dozens of professional training programmes, including very successful free online courses (MOOCs), and hundreds of internships, seminars, workshops and events across the world. Achieving our main goals for 2019/2020 was possible only thanks to the resilience of our 100 academic members based in seven regional hubs – Africa, the Arab World, Asia Pacific, Caucasus, Europe, South America and the Caribbean, and South East Europe. 

The Global Campus inaugural Annual Report features a bit of history of the network; the achievements of our members around the world; how we responded to the pandemic; our focus on the rights of children; our deep connections with the arts; research; and data on our activities and financials. A sneak peek at 2021 gives you a taste of what we are working on.

We wish to thank the European Union, our partnership with the Right Livelihood Foundation, and many other donors. In addition, we are grateful to the invited contributors to our Annual Report, prominent figures from international agencies, politics, philanthropy, and the arts, all committed to the promotion and protection of human rights: Michelle Bachelet, Eamon Gilmore, Jutta Urpilainen, Michael O’Flaherty, Ole von Uexküll, Vandana Shiva, Julian Fifer and Koen Vanmechelen.
