Postgraduate Diploma on Integral Protection for Human Rights Defenders and Social Activists - 2nd Edition
January 2013 - July 2013
The Universidad Pablo de Olavide (Sevilla, Spain) and Protection International jointly organise the online course 'Postgraduate Diploma on Integral Protection for Human Rights Defenders and Social Activists'.
This diploma is the first of its kind, since it is the only international Postgraduate Diploma addressing the need to protect those who work daily to defend human rights and, as a consequence of their work, suffer repression and aggression. The course addresses this protection in a comprehensive way, covering the existing national, international and regional laws and protection mechanisms, whilst studying security management, psychosocial support, the design of protection programmes, etc. The course will also include an introduction to the protection of witnesses and victims (with whom defenders usually work). Distance learning also offers the opportunity to participate from anywhere in the world, without having to leave your usual occupation.
