About the Training: The Training of Trainers (TOT) is an activity under the project ‘Consolidating civil society’s role in the transition from African human rights standards to practice’ funded by the European Commission and to be implemented by the International Commission for Jurists (European Institutions and Kenya branches), Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) and the African Centre for Democracy and Human Rights Studies (ACDHRS).
The Training would cover topics centered on: the United Nations Human Rights System, the African Human Rights System, The African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights and related Protocols, The African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights as well as allow participants and organizers to share experiences on their engagement with the International and Regional human rights systems and mechanisms.
Objectives of the Training: The general objective of the TOT workshop is to build the capacity of a large group of Trainers representing human rights NGOs, Journalists and Lawyers to equip them with knowledge and skills for a proper and more effective way to engage with the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR), the Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (ACERWC) and the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights for strategic engagement and litigation by civil society. It will serve as an induction especially for those HRDs with little or no prior experience engaging the African human rights system.
Participants: The training will target representatives of human rights NGOs, Practitioners/Lawyers, Journalists from West and Central Africa.
