Course objectives
The overall objective of the intensive course is to build the capacity of the participants in relation to the practical application of human rights in their respective countries. By capacity we mean the combination of knowledge, skills and attitudes, with an ultimate aim to empower the participants to have a ommitment towards human rights friendly change.

Participants will have the possibility to study, in detail, how human rights are implemented in practice in Sweden by making visits to Swedish organisations, institutions and authorities while they study in Lund.

In addition, by mixing participants from different countries and sectors, there will be possibilities to explore networking opportunities among the participants. These networks can contribute substantially to furthering students’ human rights work.

The course is primarily targeted at professionals who work with human rights in practice but who are in need of additional human rights education and training. The participants will be selected from Belarus, Cambodia, Kenya, Myanmar and Turkey, and represent a variety of sectors and backgrounds.
