Our Training Hub offers a series of public trainings on the functions and use of the UN human rights system and on selected human rights issues of relevance for NGOs, academics and governmental actors.
This training course will delve into the means and mechanisms through which national actors can best coordinate their human rights monitoring and implementation efforts, enabling them to strategically navigate the UN human rights system and use the various mechanisms available in their day-to-day work.
This training course will focus on the most efficient human rights mechanisms – at national and international levels – to promote and protect human rights in the private sector and address corporations’ human rights abuses.
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.

This training course will explore the origin and evolution of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) and its functioning in Geneva and will focus on the nature of implementation of the UPR recommendations at the national level.
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.
