Institut de Drets Humans de Catalunya
Online course 'Introduction to international protection of human rights'
3 - 31 October 2016

The online course 'Introduction to international protection of human rights' organized by the Institut de Drets Humans de Catalunya (IDHC) will examine the process of internationalization of human rights at the universal level, from an essentially normative perspective. It will discuss the foundations and evolution of human rights and study the main international human rights protection instruments, with a specific focus on the United Nations and European systems. The existence of these instruments and mechanisms is often unknown by citizens and they are underutilised in the guarantee and protection of human rights. This course aims to increase students’ skills and knowledge in order for them to be used within their fields of work.
The course is offered in English. The number of places is limited to 30. The course fee is € 150.

From 2 November - 2 December 2016, IDHC organizes another online course on the subject of 'The European Court of Human Rights: functioning, procedure for applying to the Court and its case-law'. If you enroll in both courses, you will benefit from a 20% discount on the total cost of the two courses.
