Self-Paced E-Learning Course 'Human Rights in Development Cooperation'

Development Cooperation should promote human rights, not least because of the diverse risks that can occur in development processes. But how can this be achieved in different development sectors and what measures does it take? Which human rights risks can occur in development projects and programmes and how can they be mitigated and/or avoided?

The E-Learning Course Human Rights in Development Cooperation addresses these questions and introduces the human rights-based approach (HRBA). It uses country case studies, interactive exercises and projects examples to show how human rights can be implemented in different development sectors.

The course consists of four self-contained modules, which are designed as self-paced and barrier-free learning. The modules are offered free of charge and can be accessed via quick registration. After successful completion learnersl obtain a personalised certificate.

Modules:

  • Human Rights in Development Cooperation (duration: 1.5 hours)
  • Human Rights in Rural Development (duration: 3 hours)
  • Human Rights in Conflict Transformation (duration: 3 hours)
  • Human Rights in Sustainable Economic Development and Resource Governance (duration: 3 hours)

The course was developed in cooperation with GIZ Sectoral Programme 'Realizing Human Rights including Children and Youth Rights in Development Cooperation'.
