Course Outline

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 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.
