Skip Course Description

Human rights defenders are people who have the courage to stand up against injustice. 

In this online course, you will follow their stories, learn how they mitigate risks and explore the creative ways they use to speak up. You will find out what drives them to take action, witness what defenders can achieve and discover how you can use your voice to defend your rights and those of others.  

Together we’ll explore:

  • The diverse situations of human rights defenders
  • Threats human rights defenders, their friends and families, are facing
  • Strategies to mitigate risks and ways to take action
You will be challenged to take part in discussions with other course participants, reflect on human rights issues you care about, and create a practical toolkit that serves as a personal guide to defending human rights. 

This is Amnesty International’s third Massive Open Online Course. Be prepared for active learning, connecting with course participants from across the world and to become part of a global community dedicated to taking action to defend human rights everywhere.

This course is also available in SpanishFrench, and Arabic.
