Minority Rights Group International (MRG) is offering a free online course under the Global Advocacy Programme (GAP) for those working for the rights of minorities across Africa, Asia and Europe.


The content of the course is divided into 11 topics, each sub-divided into a number of short sections, designed to require not more than three to four hours per week to complete each one.

There are two versions of the course. The first can be accessed HERE and requires an ‘enrollment key’ – a one-time password students will receive from the MRG administrator once accepted into the course. This version includes tutor support from MRG, and is available in English, French and Russian languages.

The public version of the course can be accessed HERE. Participants can create a free account or log-in as a guest. The public version of the course has no tutor support and is geared toward self-guided study by including a glossary and number of resources. It is only available in English.
