The NCHR Intensive Course on Human Rights is a multi-disciplinary course that will give participants knowledge on:
- International human rights standards
- The systems in place for protecting human rights at UN, regional and national level
- Practical application of human rights
- Key contemporary human rights issues such as freedom of religion, and the human rights of refugees
The course has a strong international profile. We welcome applications from different backgrounds such as; human rights defenders, government officials, civil servants, NGO representatives, legal practitioners and academics - all who would like to strengthen their ability to integrate human rights standards in their daily work and get a systematic introduction to the international human rights system. Surveys and feedback from previous participants show a very high level of satisfaction.
