They are as follows:

International Human Rights Law: An Introduction (one week)

International Law from a Gender Perspective (one week)

And a combined two week course:

Human Rights and Gender

With Utrecht’s fantastic new library, beautiful canals and vibrant café-scene, I can’t think of a better place to spend your summer learning about human rights and gender! The deadline for registration is 17 June 2016.
