The Global Campus of Human Rights is now accepting applications for the Venice School of Human Rights 2020. The School will take place in Venice, at the Global Campus of Human Rights Headquarters, from 28 March to 4 April 2020.


The programme is divided into three separate streams covering human rights defenders, gender equality, and rights of the child. A core introduction to each of the main themes will be provided to all participants in plenary, and following this, specialised seminars will be organised in smaller groups in the respective subject areas. A red thread running through the programme will be to highlight and work with the concrete experience of participants, who bring a rich legacy of engagement in complex human rights situations to bear on the programme.


The faculty of the School includes prominent academics, representatives of leading human rights NGOs, members of the European Parliament and Sakharov Prize Laureates.

Application deadline: 24 February 2020, early bird until 27 January to receive a 10% discount.

We strongly recommend early registration as the number of places is limited.

Admission Requirements: The Venice School is addressed to graduate students from all academic backgrounds. All courses will be held in English.
