The African Centre for Democracy and Human Rights Studies (ACDHRS) and its partners will organize a four (4) day Training of Trainers (TOT) workshop on African Human Rights Systems & Mechanisms With A Special Focus On Freedom Of Association & Assembly from the 2nd – 5th October 2019.
The partners are: The African Commission on Human and People’s Rights, International Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ICNL) and JOINT -Ligas de ONGs em Mocambique. 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’ 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 Main Objectives of the TOT workshop is to build the capacity of a large group of lusophone Trainers representing human rights NGOs, Human Right Practitioners, 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.
The TOT will bring together prominent human rights defenders as well as lawyers, journalists, professors and civil society organization representatives. The Training will consist of about 25 participants from lusophone countries (Angola, Cape Verde, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, & Sao Tome Principe).
