 33rd annual International Human Rights Training Program, June 3 – June 22, 2012

We are delighted to announce that the application period for the 33rd annual International Human Rights Training Program (IHRTP) is now open and we will be accepting applications until November 21st, 2011. We look forward to another inspiring three-week program and the opportunity to meet more than 120 participants from around the world.

The IHRTP is intended for human rights workers and educators from non-governmental organizations, National Human Rights Institutions, government bodies and educational institutions. The goal of the IHRTP is to strengthen the capacity of human rights organizations to undertake human rights education efforts aimed at building a global culture of human rights. The curriculum is based on principles of adult experiential learning in which participants and facilitators engage in a process of mutual teaching and learning.
“This training program is an important Canadian contribution to the spread of human rights and democratic principles around the world,” says Ian Hamilton, Executive Director of Equitas. “Through the IHRTP, participants gain greater confidence in their abilities as well as the skills and motivation to become effective human rights champions upon their return home”.
