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.

For more information, please refer to www.hr4dev.be.

On 21 March 2014, the SJP major programme in collaboration with Amnesty International’s “Movies that Matter” Film Festival, organised an event with Eritrean radio host and human rights activist Meron Estefamos, who came to the ISS to share her work.

Esimagestefamos gave a stirring account of her work with African migrants who have been held hostage in the Sinai and faced further discrimination in Israel. Her work is documented in a film featured at the 2014 Movies that Matter film festival, entitled “Sound of Torture”. Here is a trailer to the film:  https://vimeo.com/81516783
