The specialisation diploma in Gender and Human Rights is an online training with synchronous teaching that addresses feminist theories and practices of Law. The aim of the studies is to expand or improve knowledge regarding rights from a gender perspective, the contributions of feminism to Law and the ways to build practices capable of transforming the legal field.
In addition, the collaboration with teachers from various universities in Latin America will allow obtaining an intersectional and interdisciplinary vision of the development of rights and public policies in the different Spanish-speaking countries. It will also be possible to expand the vision of the contributions of legal feminism in the rest of the world.
This study is aimed at lawyers and social science professionals (political science, sociology, psychology, criminology, social work, etc.).
