NORDEM Training in International Applied Human Rights Work

In 2016 NORDEM offers a course in applied international human rights work. The aim of this course is to provide the participants with the tools and skills necessary to integrate and promote human rights into their work for an international organisation. It will cover the whole cycle of human rights monitoring as the basis for human rights advocacy and capacity building.
