This training course will explore the major international and regional instruments for the promotion of human rights, as well as with their implementation and enforcement mechanisms; and provide practical insights into the different UN human rights mechanisms pertinent to advancing environmental issues and protecting environmental human rights defenders.
I find myself greatly enriched by the diverse set of topics covered in this course. The course was extremely well curated covering nearly all significant topics relating to women’s human rights. Each session was distinct in its coverage of a specific topic and the course instructor as well as the guest speakers displayed impressive depth of knowledge of the topics they presented along with evidence of their practical field experiences of working in dedicated areas of women’s human rights.
