  • Human Rights Education Associates: Education in Emergencies
    Human Rights Education Associates (HREA)

    The Human Rights Education Associates (HREA) is an international non-governmental and non-profit organisation that supports human rights education; the training of human rights defenders and professional groups; and the development of educational materials and programming. HREA is dedicated to quality education and training to promote understanding, attitudes and actions to protect human rights, and to foster the development of peaceable, free and just communities.

    HREA is conducting an online course on Education in Emergencies from 2 November-13 December 2016.  
     
    This e-learning course introduces staff members of (international) development agencies and NGOs to the legal frameworks protecting and governing education in emergencies. More than half the world’s permanently out-of-school children live in areas affected by emergencies, either natural disasters or armed conflict. Many more become temporarily affected when an emergency strikes or they face entire childhoods in refugee camps. All are protected by a special combination of human rights, refugee, criminal and humanitarian law, spelling out how to prevent attacks, discrimination and violations of education, and clearly stipulating who are the duty-bearers, what mechanisms for redress exist and how education must look in an emergency response.
     
    This certificate course involves approximately 30 hours of reading, discussion, webinars, a writing assignment and quizzes, and is offered over a six-week period. The course is based on a participatory, active learning approach, with an emphasis on critical reflection and peer-to-peer learning. Participants will do the required readings, prepare interim and final assignments and participate in group discussions. Case studies will be used to enable interactive learning and activities.

    Participants will receive a Certificate of Participation upon successful completion of the course. The maximum number of participants is 25. It is also possible to audit the course.
