The program included discussions on environmental law, human rights law, investigative interviewing and restorative justice, as well as on possible future cooperation between NCHR and the Judicial Training Centre of the Supreme Court. The Indonesian Supreme Court has a mandate which includes administration and capacity building of all first and second instance courts in Indonesia. 

Since NCHR started its Indonesia-engagement in 2003 there has been various human rights trainings targeting Indonesian judges, most recently in November 2021. The Norwegian embassy has also financed a number of trainings in human rights and environmental law since 2018. Chief Justice M. Syarifuddin expressed his appreciation for such cooperation: "We are a close partner in building quality of Indonesian judges and prospective judges through various programs to strengthen legal and judicial cooperation, especially on Human Rights, Environmental Law and Climate Change”. 

The visiting delegation consisted of 17 people, in addition to the Indonesian ambassador and staff from the Indonesian embassy. The delegation also met with Oslo District court and the Norwegian Supreme Court.
