The introductory course on international human rights gave the participants a condensed introduction to international human rights law, as well as a glance into different specific areas of rights such as; Freedom of Expression; Business and Human Rights; Indigenous Peoples’ Rights: The right to self-determination; Non-discrimination; Freedom of Religion and Belief; Women’s Rights and Disability Rights.

Time was also set aside for a visit to the Supreme Court of Norway and a moot court competition.

After an unusually sunny early autumn week in Oslo the participants were all a bit exhausted, still seemingly quite content.
