Applications for the Critical Interdisciplinary Course on Children’s Rights (CICCR) are open at www.hr4dev.be.

HR4DEV-logoThe course will take place in Ghent from August 28th until September 9th 2016. CICCR maps the potential and limits of a children’s rights approach towards global and local issues concerning the human rights of children. Key themes include a multidisciplinary introduction to children’s rights, contextualizing children’s rights in (local) governance, global challenges to children’s rights in a local context (including diversity, poverty, migration and health), and critical approaches to children’s rights in research, policy and practice. The preliminary programme can now be found here.

The course organizers offer a limited amount of scholarships from VLIR-UOS and UNESCO to candidates who fulfill the application criteria. Scholarship applicants are welcome to submit their application form until April 15th. The deadline for self-funded participants is May 15th. Only complete applications submitted through the website will be considered.
