Preventing and Combating Terrorism

End date: 8 Jun 2023

Since the 9.11 attacks, and with the multiplication of terrorist attacks on European soil, terrorism is considered one of the most important security threats the international community has to face. To what extent may states limit and/or derogate from their international human rights obligations in order to prevent and counter terrorism and thus protect persons under their jurisdiction? Which and whose human rights are at risk when states fight terrorism? What are the human rights challenges posed by the United Nations counter-terrorist sanctions regime? In which circumstances may lethal force – including drone strikes – be used against alleged members of terrorist groups or so-called ‘lone wolves’? Which international law rules apply in relation to the internment/detention and interrogation of persons accused of terrorism?

These are some of the key issues discussed in this short course, addressing several rights including the right to life, the right to liberty, the prohibition of torture, the right to property, and freedom of movement. Although the course is mainly human rights oriented, other international legal frameworks such as jus ad bellum and international humanitarian law will be touched upon. Recent trends in counter-terrorism, such as the preventing and countering violent extremism agenda, will be discussed in light of their human rights impact.

Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict

Fri, 03 Feb 2023 04:25:52 +0000

Organization: Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights
Start date: 24 Sep 2023
End date: 30 Jun 2024
Registration deadline: 30 Apr 2023

The online Executive Master in International Law in Armed Conflict is one of the few part-time, innovative and intellectually challenging programmes in the law of armed conflict offered today.

Designed for professionals with demanding jobs and responsibilities, it provides them with a solid legal background to address the multiple challenges that arise in humanitarian emergencies, human rights negotiations or criminal proceedings.

The programme enables participants to gain specialized knowledge directly applicable to professional work. It also responds to the growing need for specialists to address complex situations – in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine and elsewhere – and challenging processes such as criminal proceedings, international negotiations and humanitarian interventions.

Professionals follow the programme online via an easy and interactive platform that allows participants to interact directly with professors and other students during classes and access all the courses’ materials and readings.

Courses take place for nine months (end of September to the beginning of June) from Wednesdays to Fridays at lunchtime (12:00 –14:00 CET). When participants cannot follow a course for professional reasons (e.g. missions, travel, conferences), they can watch the recordings afterwards. They cover international law, international humanitarian law (IHL), international human rights law (IHRL), international criminal law (ICL) and the interplay between them, providing solid theoretical and practical knowledge of the law that applies to armed conflicts. They also address current issues and challenges, including the repression of terrorism, the responsibility to protect and international refugee law.

Exams take place online at the end of classes in June, with retakes in August. After the exams in June, participants have six months to submit their master’s paper (i.e. by December), one output of the Executive Master that allows participants to investigate a subject of special interest and deepen their knowledge and expertise through research as well as potential exchanges with experts, scholars and practitioners.

Country: Switzerland
Organization: Swiss Peace Foundation
Start date: 30 Mar 2023
End date: 31 Mar 2023
Registration deadline: 15 Feb 2023

This course explores how climate change and related international and national policies impact conflicts. The course sets off with an introduction to the key economic, political, and social concepts that have served to hypothesize and investigate the causal linkages between natural resources and conflicts. Next, we look at the technological and policy drivers of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHGs) since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and explore the foundations of global and climate policies with emphasis on the more recent developments that have taken place since the 2015 Paris Agreement was reached. Bringing together these two discussions, we explore, reflect upon, and discuss which regions and countries are affected and how, and how different stakeholders might be able to contribute to addressing climate-induced conflicts.

As a participant, you will:

  • Gain an overview of key social science concepts developed to understand natural resource conflicts;
  • reflect on the technological and policy drivers behind rising Greenhouse Gas Emissions since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution;
  • learn how global climate policy has evolved since the 1990s and why the 2015 Paris Agreement was hailed a success;
  • look at examples of conflicts linked to natural resources and potential and actual policy dilemmas underpinning these;
  • reflect on the impacts of climate change on different regions, the responses and coping mechanisms people pursue, and the climate policies that governments develop;
  • reflect on the role of the private sector, including the financial sector, on financing the energy transition and nature-based solutions;
  • exchange experiences and become part of a community of practice.

The course consists of preparatory readings and a 2-day on-site training (Thursday to Friday) at the kHaus in Basel. The course schedule is 9h00-12h30 and 14h00-17h30 (may be subject to change). The detailed program will be sent to participants in due time.

Documenting and Archiving from a Dealing with the Past Perspective

Fri, 03 Feb 2023 02:34:24 +0000

Organization: Swiss Peace Foundation
Start date: 8 Mar 2023
End date: 17 Mar 2023
Registration deadline: 15 Feb 2023

Documentary evidence plays an important role in dealing with the past processes. It is indispensable for truth seeking, accountability, reparations, institutional reforms, vetting, memorialization and history. However, if the creation, collection, management, and preservation of such evidence is not properly done, records and archives documenting violations of human rights and international humanitarian law can be at risk of losing their value and thus prevent their future usability.

In this course, participants will acquire a comprehensive understanding on how documenting and archival practices can support dealing with the past processes. Additionally, topics related to documenting and archiving principles, good practices for the creation and capture of information, arrangement and description, access, preservation and protection will also be introduced. Finally, participants will also learn about ethical and legal responsibilities, such as informed consent, information privacy, the right to be forgotten and do no harm.

This course is perfect for civil society and governmental actors who want to update their skills in a practice-oriented manner. Course materials are introduced by drawing on concrete examples, which allows participants to gain valuable knowledge for their daily work.

In this course, you will:

  • Acquire a comprehensive understanding of documenting and archiving practices to support the right to know, the right to reparations, the right to justice as well as the guarantees of non-recurrence.
  • Familiarize yourself with documentation and archival principles, technical requirements, and practices.
  • Reflect on ethical principles and legal responsibilities involved in the creation, management, access, and preservation of records and archives for dealing with the past processes.
  • Exchange with experts and practitioners and become part of a community of practice.

This course is offered in an interactive virtual format. The course consists of preparatory readings, 6 half-days of online-facilitated course (08/09/10 and 15/16/17 March 2023), and individual or group assignments to work on throughout the course.

Organization: UN System Staff College
Start date: 20 Feb 2023
End date: 20 Dec 2023
Registration deadline: 20 Dec 2023

The central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is to take transformative steps to shift the world to a sustainable and resilient path.

This course explores Sustainable Lifestyles in the context of the 2030 Agenda, advancing the understanding of how lifestyle choices impact the world around us and how we can find ways for everyone to live better and lighter.

The course will explore what sustainable lifestyles are, the values and beliefs that influence our choices, and the strategies that we could apply to create positive and long-lasting change towards sustainability in our systems and our lives.

Introduction

The central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is to take transformative steps to shift the world on a sustainable and resilient path. This is only possible if we collectively rethink the way we live and how we consume, making conscious choices toward more Sustainable Lifestyles.

To have clarity about our choices, it is important to assess the impacts that our current behaviours and consumption patterns have on the planet and make lifestyle choices that contribute to sustainability. Lifestyles are different according to each group and region, and even though there is no “one solution fits all” when moving towards sustainable living, it is possible to come up with solutions and initiatives that are better adapted to each reality.

This course explores Sustainable Lifestyles in the context of the 2030 Agenda, advancing the understanding of how our lifestyle choices impact the world around us and how we can find ways for everyone to live better and with a lighter impact.

Objectives

Upon the successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the concept of Sustainable Lifestyles and the potential of collective impact of individual actions.
  • Realize the main determinants and values that shape our lifestyle decisions.
  • Understand the five key domains of consumption and how they can become more sustainable.
  • Explore the policy environments that support sustainable choices.
  • Recognize the importance of individual actions to promote long-lasting transformation.
  • Explore solutions tailored to different realities and contexts.

UNSSC online courses give learners the opportunity to complete activities when it best fits their schedule. Participants are largely free to determine their own weekly study plan. Demanding three hours of study, this UNSSC online course incorporates the same high academic rigour as any UNSSC face-to-face programme.

Development and Human Rights

Organization: University for Peace
Start date: 15 Mar 2023

Registration deadline: 14 Mar 2023

Development and Human Rights (15 March – 25 April, 2023)

This course is also offered as part of the Professional Development Diploma on Sustainable Development and Human Rights.

Course Description

This certificate course offered by the Human Rights Center of the University for Peace introduces participants to the major themes and debates concerning the relationship between human rights and development. The course begins with an examination of the different conceptions of ‘development’, including its evolution in theory, policy and practice, and its linkages with human rights. Participants analyze the concept of human right to development, which treats development itself as a human right and not just a process which leads to improvement in human rights. The doctrinal and policy implications of adopting a ‘human rights based approach to development’, and the related ‘right to development framework’, are discussed along with what such approaches mean, and what are the tools to implement them in the field. Participants will also explore the new streams of critique that have enabled a confluence as well as a questioning of the human rights-development linkages. These include a critical analysis of the successes and failures of the UN Millennium Development Goals from a human rights perspective, and the implications for the new post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals. The role of strategic litigation in achieving the right to development, whether using that terminology or not, is then looked at with the help of case studies from around the world. Impacts of big projects on indigenous communities is specifically inquired into. In the latter part of the course, selected current issues in the human rights-development interface that are salient from a policy perspective will be examined, including the role of trade, finance, investment, development aid, and aid for trade.

The course is based on a dynamic pedagogy including reading materials, video clips, case studies, and interactive webinars with the instructor.

Course Outline

•Week 1: Conceptions of human rights and development

•Week 2: The human right to development

•Week 3: The Sustainable Development Goals and Human Rights

•Week 4: Rule of Law and Development

•Week 5: Role of trade, finance and investment in development

•Week 6: Development aid, aid for trade, and human rights

Who Should Apply

The course is intended for staff members of development organisations, including development NGOs and UN specialised agencies, as well as others interested in learning more about human rights based approaches to development in theory and practice. Candidates should have a good written command of English and have high competence and comfort with computer and Internet use.
