UNESCO and the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights at the Faculty of Law, University of Oxford, will soon be launching a new version of a global multilingual Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for judicial actors on the international and regional standards on freedom of expression and the safety of journalists.

The course, which will be available in English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Russian and Portuguese, will build on the successful UNESCO-Bonavero Institute MOOC on freedom of expression which was delivered in English in 2021.

We, therefore, invite you to join a global audience of over 25,500 judicial actors already trained on these issues, by registering to this new multilingual massive open online course.

 Pre-register today through this registration form: https://on.unesco.org/3ydrgS2 

* We will shortly notify you by email of the next steps to finalize the registration process.  

Please also find attached an official letter of invitation as well as a flyer with relevant information on the course. More information on the MOOC can be found here.

This free, five-week online course will run between 29 May and 30 June 2023The course will be led by experts in the field of human rights and freedom of expression and will include high-level guest speakers such as UN Special Rapporteurs, judges from regional human rights courts, prosecutors, and human rights lawyers. A certificate of completion will be issued for participants who will successfully complete the course.

We would be grateful if you could please share this information as well as the flyer attached with your network and on your social media accounts.
