Introductory Course on International Human Rights (formerly called ‘Basic Course on Human Rights’)
The course seeks to provide participants with introductory knowledge of international human rights that will broaden their perspectives and opportunities for integrating human rights principles, standards and approaches into their daily work.
Course venue: The NCHR Seminar Room, Cort Adelers gate 30, Oslo.
The five day course will cover a basic introduction to international human rights: their institutions and substantive rights, as well as their monitoring, implementation and enforcement. The course will also include introductions from the Centre’s library staff on how to research the topics covered during the course. The various topics will be taught by human rights researchers and practitioners based in Norway. They will provide lectures, case studies, and group work that actively engage participants in sharing of knowledge, practical experiences and challenges from their daily work. Participants are expected to actively engage in the course by participating in group work and discussions. Participants should be prepared to spend 1-2 hours reading each night during the course. The course is limited to 28 participants.
