MOOC (Massive Open Online Course): Children Deprived of Liberty: Learning from the UN Global Study, Global Campus of Human Rights, Italy. Course dates: 18 November 2019-19 January 2020. Free enrollment until 31 December 2019.
Despite the fact that the Convention on the Rights of the Child affirms that, in principle, children should not be detained and deprivation of liberty should be a measure of last resort, millions of children in the world are locked away. To address this problem, the United Nations appointed Manfred Nowak as Independent Expert to lead the Global Study on children deprived of liberty. This unique MOOC stems from this study and provides insights, learning and recommendations in this important area at the crossroad of children, violence, and human rights studies.
The MOOC is free and designed for participants who are actively interested and engaged in children’s rights work and wish to deepen their knowledge about the protection of children deprived of liberty.
