The #VeniceSchool of #HumanRights allows its participants coming from all over the world to list these challenges and examine their reasons and possible solutions they can deploy. The EIUC Venice School at the same time, combines theory and practice and its faculty involves both academics and practitioners. The Venice School intends to highlight that the respect for human rights is the responsibility of all, that "Human Rights are our responsibility".

Courses are scheduled to take place in Venice at the premises of the European Inter-University Centre in Human Rights and Democratisation over a period of 8 days. The courses will be taught in English by internationally recognised experts in the fields of human rights belonging to EIUC's partner universities and other organisations that support EIUC projects and endeavors. Participants will benefit from an extremely rich cultural environment including visits to museums, galleries, churches and the Venice Biennale. Finally, they will be able to relax and enjoy walking along the Lido beaches or cycling around the island once the courses finish in the afternoon.

The Opening Lecture of the School will be held by Prof. Manfred Nowak, EIUC Secretary General and Prof. Dalia Leinarte, Chairperson of the CEDAW Committee -UN Human Rights Treaty Body. Manfred Nowak, Professor of international law and human rights at the University of Vienna, has been the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture and member of the United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances. He has been recently appointed by the UN Secretary General to lead the New Global Study on Situation of Children in Detention. Dalia Leinarte is Professor of History at Lucy Cavendish College, she has published extensively on women and family in Imperial Russia, and former Soviet Union.

Faculty of Cluster: Business & Human Rights: recent trends and developments
The aim of the cluster is to allow participants to gain insights and most recent update on Business and Human Rights agenda and provide a practical view points from a broad global network of international stakeholders; to interact with experts and representatives from International institutions, Private sector and Academia, to join in the global network of human rights experts of EIUC which gathers the most prominent international universities specialised on human rights.

Faculty of Cluster: Human Rights Defenders
Human rights defenders play an essential role in the realisation of rights by fighting for human rights in situations of oppression and abuse; drawing attention of the international community; assisting victims and contributing to holding those in power accountable. The cluster will review a cross-section of instruments, policies and coordination mechanisms devised to protect and facilitate the work of human rights defenders. It will explore possibilities for reinforcing their work and will address the involvement of civil society and human rights defenders in transitional justice processes.

Faculty of Cluster: Women, Peace and Security in a growing extremist and militarised world: Agenda, Implementation gap and the Transformative Approach & Potential of CEDAW
Gender inequality remains one the most pervasive and massive human rights violations of all time. It is the root cause for a great amount of women’s suffering both in times of peace and in times of conflict. De facto ‘normalized’ in times of peace, despite de jure prohibition, such violations and suffering are exacerbated in a conflict setting, on the road to migration, in refugee camps, etc. The cluster will provide a state of the art critical appraisal on the Women, Peace and Security agenda in a growing extremist and militarised world and stimulate reflection on achievements, key challenges and ways ahead.
