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.
The content of this MOOC is based on the FRAME project (www.fp7-frame.eu). This course is offered in partnership with Kiron Open Higher Education and the Association of Human Rights Institutes (AHRI).
