Application for CREA’s 8th Disability, Sexuality, and Rights Online Institute

30th August – 8th October, 2021
(Completely online, 6 weeks, 8-12 hours per week)

The Disability, Sexuality, and Rights Online Institute provides a study of theory and practice on the intersection of disability, gender and sexuality. The institute is aimed at activists, practitioners, academics and human rights actors working areas such as disability rights, gender rights, development, sexual and reproductive health, sexuality, media, and law. The aim is to create awareness about how disability, sexuality and rights intersect, build a political perspective on how the sexual rights of persons with disabilities can be upheld, and provide knowledge on mechanisms for building more inclusive sexual rights advocacy. Participants develop their ability to work in inclusive and holistic ways that further human rights and social justice. CREA coordinated the first Disability, Sexuality, and Rights Online Institute in 2010.
