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.


Questions about the course can be directed to Aksel Tømte,
