On completion of the course, participants will be able to gain:
- Insights on international developments concerning GBV and migration and associated key challenges.
- Knowledge of international legal instruments to prevent, combat and eradicate GBV.
- Knowledge about the GBV challenges associated with the gender-related dimensions of refugee status, asylum, nationality and statelessness at each stage of the displacement cycle.

The course encompasses an 8-week period. Participants are expected to engage in approximately 40 hours of active learning through readings, videos, podcasts, discussions, webinars and quizzes. The course is based on a participatory approach aimed at developing and reinforcing personal critical reflection and peer-to-peer learning. Case studies will be used to identify cross-regional and cross-cutting issues and enable a multidimensional understanding of practical application.
