- a ﬁnal paper developing further the thematic discussed during the case study (55%). The deadline for the paper is 31/04/2017. Workload : The workload of the course consists of readings in preparation of the lectures, listed in the outline of the course. For each unit maximum three articles are preselected, requesting approximatively 9 hours reading. Additional reference is provided as an input for the papers. Pedagogical method : The pedagogical approach is interactive and combines lectures with teamwork. During the case study, students are invited to take an active role and come prepared to join discussions. Preparation consists of building arguments, based on proposed readings on Violence Against Women and Migration. The course consists of 6 units, four hours each, spread over 6 weeks. Course Description : The Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development Goals sets the new scene for integrating gender as a cross-cutting issue in development. Ultimately, 40 years after the ﬁrst World Conference on the International Women's Year held in Mexico in 1975 and three successive World Conferences on Women (Copenhagen 1980, Nairobi 1985 and Beijing 1995), the global women's network positioned gender equality on equal terms with mainstream international cooperation. In spite of these efforts, women still feel the need to empower, to claim their rights and to ﬁght for justice, equal opportunities and gender equality, especially in developing countries. The course will question progress and analyse the structural causes of gender inequality, discrimination and violation of women's rights. Case studies from Africa will unravel capacity gaps, respectively of duty bearers to respect, protect and promote women's rights and of right holders to know, claim and enjoy their rights. Students will be skilled to integrate gender in the cooperation cycle and to apply tools and approaches during classes. The course consists of ﬁve theoretical and one thematic unit, the latter being a case study from Morocco on Violence Against Women and Migration.
