About the Post-Project
Submission form below. As the second part of your application to the WHRI course, you must submit a 200-300 word statement on your plan for implementing your learning post-WHRI. Your WHRI application will not be complete until we receive this statement. Applications for the CEDAW for change one week course do not require a post-plan. The submission form is located at the bottom of this page
Note that you will also be asked to submit a report of your post-institute project implementation six to eight months after the end of the WHRI. The best among these reports will become part of an online database of information available for others, and will be a testament to your learning as well as the impact of the program itself.
If you are already working in the field of women’s human rights and plan to use the institute to augment your work, your plan can reflect how you plan to apply your learning in your existing work/project/programs.
Project Planning Tips
a) Development and execution of a women’s human rights training course/workshop for your colleagues/associates/target audience in your work.
b) Project to promote and support implementation of the CEDAW committee’s concluding observations for the most recent report for the State Party (country) in which you live/work
In either case, it would be helpful to familiarize yourself with the most recent concluding observations of the CEDAW committee for the State Party in which you live/work. You will find a link to these on our website, or here: http://www.bayefsky.com/docs.php/area/conclobs/node/2/treaty/cedaw/opt/0
We also recommend reading both official country reports and any Alternative or Shadow reports submitted by NGOs to the CEDAW committee. Some of the latter can be found on IWRAW-APs website: http://www.iwraw-ap.org/resources/shadow_reports.htm
