New MOOC on disability rights
As part of the Just4All project, a massive open online course (MOOC) on disability rights is now online > See the MOOC.
The course is fully accessible to all people with disabilities and is available in English, Spanish and French.
Just4All is a project funded by the European Union’s Justice Programme (2014-2020) which aims to improve access to justice for people with disabilities and thus contribute to the effective implementation of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the European Union Disability Regulations.
In order to achieve these objectives, the institutions participating in this project, which is led by Fundación ONCE in partnership with the European Association of Service Providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD), the European Disability Forum (EDF), Thomson Reuters and the Institute of Human Rights “Gregorio Peces Barba” of the University Carlos III of Madrid, have designed this MOOC on the subject, which will be complemented by training with legal professionals through the organisation of different workshops.
Although the MOOC is primarily designed for legal practitioners, including lawyers and notaries, it is also open to a wider audience. Indeed, the course may also be of interest to people with disabilities and experts in the field of disability.
