International Human Rights Training Programs
The Women’s Human Rights Institute helps participants develop a practical understanding of the UN Human Rights system and learn how to apply a women’s human rights framework to a multiplicity of issues. Participants will develop skills to help them become human rights educators in their own regions and organizations.
The WHRI Intensive educational institute is a unique space for learning about the theory and praxis of women’s human rights, preparing participants to use the UN system and the CEDAW convention to support local, national and international level activism. Participants develop facilitation and planning skills to engage in executing workshops and training for others on women’s human rights,and explore women’s human rights as a visionary framework for integrative social, collective, and individual change.
CEDAW for Change
The CEDAW for Change Institute is a one week educational institute focussed on the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and its core principles of non-discrimination and substantive equality. Participants engage in in-depth learning of the theoretical and analytical frame of the Convention, and examine case studies that have come before CEDAW and strategize on how to link their work to that of the CEDAW committee and a women’s human rights education framework.
