Learn how the EU affects human rights and gain insights into the ways the EU can enhance its positive impact on human rights worldwide in this FREE Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on The EU and Human Rights.
After a successful first run with over 8,000 participants from more than 170 countries, the Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies offers this MOOC again as of 21 June 2016.
Whether you are an EU citizen or not, this course concerns you! The EU is a major global actor in the field of human rights. EU Treaties state that human rights are a fundamental value of the Union, which must be a silver thread in all its policies. The EU now acts within an impressive array of competences, and therefore has the potential to impact – positively or negatively – anyone’s human rights.
This EU and Human Rights course teaches the basics of human rights, placing the EU at the centre of investigation.
