Monitoring Women's Rights
This e-learning course is an introduction to documenting and monitoring women's human rights and gender equality, including sexual and gender based violence, women in situations of armed conflict, education, political rights and freedoms, and special protection measures. It will critically look at the gendered dimension to women's human rights violations and the challenges in implementing and monitoring these rights in an analytical framework. The course will address the cycle of monitoring, including tool development; methodologies for carrying out documentation; and the application of results for improving the respect, protection, prevention and realisation of women's human rights.
This certificate course involves approximately 30 hours of reading, on-line working groups, assignments, and interaction among students and the instructor, and is offered over a 6-week period. The course will integrate active and participatory learning approaches within activities and assignments, with an emphasis on reflective and collaborative learning. Participants will do the required reading, prepare interim and final project assignments, including case studies, and participate in group discussions, chat sessions and webinars. The maximum number of course participants is 25. Students who successfully complete the course will receive a Certificate of Participation. It is also possible to audit the course.
