University of Cape Town: New MOOC to launch- Gender, violence and post-conflict states


A team of researchers, including the University of Cape Town’s (UCT) Dr Robert Morrell, recently produced a massive open online course (MOOC) on gender, violence and post-conflict states. The project leaders were Dr Thomas Brorsen Smidt and Dr Giti Chandra of the University of Iceland.

MOOCs are free online courses with no entry requirements in which participants have an opportunity to study alongside fellow students from across the world.

In this course, participants will learn about the gendered dynamics of different types of violence, restorative justice, apartheid, peacekeeping, and international policy frameworks on sexual and gender-based violence.

Taught by acclaimed international experts, this course will bring a gender lens to complex issues in international development that will allow participants to analyse and address political conflict situations in ways that are more just and inclusive.
