This month, the newest run of our Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on the ECHR 'Human Rights for Open Societies' is open for participation again (and a next edition will run from November onwards for which you can register already). Join the more than 16,000 students from across the globe interested in the ECHR system and human rights! For more information see our teaser video here:
Our course covers both the system and general principles of the European Convention as well as a range of specific topics connected to open societies: the linkages between the ECHR and democracy, the issues of non-discrimination and vulnerable groups, and freedom of expression and assembly. Or, as one of our participants stated:
"By giving concrete examples, the course is able to explain, even simplify, complex (legal) concepts and cases. I strongly recommend this course for everyone wishing to have basic knowledge on how the ECHR system works."
