The Global Campus of Human Rights is now accepting applications for the Venice School of Human Rights 2020. The School will take place in Venice, at the Global Campus of Human Rights Headquarters, from 28 March to 4 April 2020.

The programme is divided into three separate streams covering human rights defenders, gender equality, and rights of the child. A core introduction to each of the main themes will be provided to all participants in plenary, and following this, specialised seminars will be organised in smaller groups in the respective subject areas. A red thread running through the programme will be to highlight and work with the concrete experience of participants, who bring a rich legacy of engagement in complex human rights situations to bear on the programme.

Course leader

The faculty of the School includes prominent academics, representatives of leading human rights NGOs, members of the European Parliament and Sakharov Prize Laureates.

Target group

The Venice School is addressed to graduate students from all academic backgrounds. All courses will be held in English.

Course aim

The Venice School 2020 is devoted to strengthening the work of human rights defenders both generally and in relation to campaigns for gender equality, protection against all forms of gender-based violence, and safeguarding children’s rights. By taking into account the age and gender markers, the programme enhances the deep understanding of the participants and provides them with useful tools.
