2023 E-Learning Program on Digital Rights

Published 1 year, 1 month ago

The course will consider how the digital environment and human rights intersect and discuss the advancement of human rights in the digital age. It examines the challenges to the promotion and realisation of rights as it applies to the emergence of digital technologies, therefore, it discusses issues pertaining to human rights and their protection in the use of digital technologies. Transparency and accountability are central to the promotion of rights in the digital era; hence, the course also examines duties, responsibilities and accountability in relation to the realisation of digital rights. Participants in the course will gain advanced specialist knowledge of contemporary human rights challenges, liabilities and accountability regimes across a range of digital environments. Participants will also gain critical awareness of the contemporary debates relating to human rights duties and responsibilities that arise in relation to digital technologies.

The course targets:

  • Recent graduates in Law, Political Science, International Relations, or related fields
  • Young professionals and practitioners within the international legal/political field

but it is open to all those who might be interested to expand their knowledge in the topic targeted.

The course will be broadcast live on Zoom. The course material and other relevant resources will be available on an online platform. During the course and for one week after the broadcast, participants will have access to video recordings of all daily sessions.

Details on the program, fees and registration can be found on the course website.
