Found in a recent issue of the Disabled Peoples International electronic newsletter:
“Applicants are needed for the 2009-2010 Master of Advanced Studies in Children’s Rights (MCR), an interdisciplinary part-time postgraduate programme in children’s rights, which is jointly organized by the Institut Universitaire Kurt Bösch (IUKB) in Sion and the University of Fribourg, both in Switzerland.
Program begins 16 February 2009 and the deadline for applications is 15 September 2008. Contact Sarah Bruchez through the website at http://www.iukb.ch/index.php?id=63“
It is not clear from their web site to what extent the program will include content on the unique needs and situation of children with disabilities, or the unique needs of children in developing countries. Nor is it clear how well the program will accommodate the needs of participants with disabilities. However, nothing ventured, nothing gained: it is my hope that We Can Do readers with an interest in the human rights of children with disabilities will follow the link to the web page for the Master of Advanced Studies in Children’s Rights and inquire directly with Sarah Bruchez in regard to these questions:
