The Global Campus of Human Rights has announced the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) Business and Human Rights Program.

The MOOC focuses on the link between companies, states and human rights with attention to the protection of human rights defenders, the concept of mandatory due diligence, recent case-law, and child labour issues.

This MOOC is a contribution to such understanding. It looks at international standards and principles as well as regional and national practices. In particular, it focuses on the links between business and human rights defenders, case-law, due diligence and children’s rights protection in this area.

It aims to be relevant for businesses themselves, state representatives, grassroot organisations working on business related issues, workers and ordinary citizens who wish to inspire a transformation in the way business and human rights relate to each other.

Utilize This Offer

The course is based on a participatory approach aimed at developing and reinforcing personal critical reflection and peer-to-peer learning. Examples from different areas of the world and on different themes allow the identification of cross-regional and cross-cutting issues and enable a global and multidimensional understanding of the topic.

The course, articulated in 2 modules, encompasses a 5-week period. Participants are expected to engage in approximately 25 hours of active learning through readings, videos, discussions and quizzes.

Global Campus of Human Rights designed this course for participants (businesses, state representatives, grassroot organisations working on business related issues, workers and ordinary citizens) around the world who are actively interested and engaged in business and human rights work and wish to gain a multidimensional understanding of current developments, key issues and possibilities for transformation.

Free enrolment until 7 February 2021.

At the end of the course, participants who have successfully completed all discussions and quizzes will receive a free certificate confirming their participation.
