The SPEAK-UP Jean Monnet Module concerns EU studies on gender discrimination and violence. It aims:

a) to promote European values of equal opportunity and dignity between women and men as fundamental rights crosscutting cultural and countries differences;
b) to encourage an active European citizenship in a globalised world, empowering women’s voice and standing in the civil society, and to sustain the future of democracy;
c) to facilitate the people-to-people dialogue along three EU and extra-UE directions: Italy, Germany, Turkish (1st year), Africa (Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda, 2nd year), and South America (Argentina, and Peru 3rd year).

The SPEAK-UP module is a multi-interdisciplinary training course offered to both higher education students coming from Italy, Turkey, and Germany who do not automatically come into contact with EU studies, and operators working for international organizations representatives of the civil society.

The multiple target groups addressed by this training programme make it unique, and fill the lack of academic courses combining practical participatory activities and the engagement of civil society organizations going beyond the European borders.

The SPEAK-UP module of the a.y. 2021-2022 proposes a blended short annual course of 54 hours lessons. Lessons will be given in June. Nine hours of extra-activities, concerning an Expert Debate, a Round Table and a Living Lab, will be provided during the same month. The course will provide students with teaching hours, practical sessions, and other public events, using innovative methodologies of engagement and active learning. Monitoring and assessment procedures are adopted to increase the effectiveness of the learning process. Information about the Jean Monnet Module are disseminated on-line via dedicated platforms and social networks.

Students attending the Module will be provided with both ETCS (from a minimum of 3 up to a maximum of 6 for students of the Degree courses of the Sapienza Dpt. of Statistics – for other students the ECTS value must be confirmed by the president/coordinator of the corresponding Degree course) and a Certificate of attendance.
