When: 20 – 22 July, 2018

Where: The Driss Benzekri National Institute for Human Rights Training

Organizers: African Centre for Democracy and Human Rights Studies (ACDHRS) in collaboration with THE National Human Rights Council of Morocco (CNDH)

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).

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 North Africa (Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Mauritania, Tunisia and All part of Morocco).
