Offer: Equitas: 2012 International Human Rights Training Program (IHRTP)
The International Human Rights Training Program (IHRTP) is at the heart of Equitas’ activities. Now in its 33rd year, this annual three-week education event brings together over 120 participants from approximately 60 countries. The IHRTP is an intermediate-level program. It provides a unique opportunity for human rights workers and educators to deepen their understanding of human rights and of the essential role of human rights education in effecting social change. Deadline for (international) applications: November 21, 2011.
The goal of the IHRTP is to strengthen the capacity of human rights organizations to undertake human rights education efforts (e.g., training, awareness campaigns, information dissemination, and advocacy) aimed at building a global culture of human rights.
To this end, the Program places a strong emphasis on the transfer of learning and on follow-up activities. Participants attending the Program develop an Individual Plan for putting their learning into action as part of the training. Therefore, when submitting their application, both organizations and Candidates nominated should consider how the transfer of learning might take place within and beyond the organization after the Program.
