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, or the human rights of refugees

The course has a strong international profile. We welcome applications from all kinds of human rights defenders, government officals or civil servants, NGO representatives and legal practitioners who would like to increase 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.
