New Mass Migration & Human Rights Mooc Launched


The Norwegian Centre for Human Rights, in collaboration with the Association of Human Rights Institutes (AHRI) , which the Raoul Wallenberg Institute is a member of, has launched a 5-week MOOC, a massive open online course, on Mass Migration & Human Rights.

The Raoul Wallenberg Institute’s Research Director Thomas Gammeltoft-Hansen has contributed several lectures to the initiative.

The course is delivered in English on a master’s level and is free to all. For more information or to register, follow this link.

The main focus of the MOOC is mass migration from and within the MENA region (Middle East and Northern Africa) and European asylum law and policies. Most of the lectures of the course are given by experts in the field and some of the contributions are given in the form of interviews. This course also includes documentaries, readings, cases and not least video portraits of children in flight drawing and telling their stories.
