This annual IHRN training programme aims at enhancing the skills of justice sector personnel, consultants, managers etc., in applying Human Rights Based Approaches to Justice Sector Reform.
The programme is designed for people working in the justice sector (with state or non-state institutions) or undertaking Rule of law/Governance assignments (e.g. UN, EC Framework Contract Lot 7 - Governance and Home Affairs) as well as justice sector personnel wishing to adapt their expertise for international consultancy work.
Knowledge and skills enhanced include:
• The legal principles, policies & practice underpinning human rights based approaches to justice sector reform
• The inter-linkages between justice sector roles (law enforcement, judiciary, corrections/rehabilitation, etc.)
• The relationship between the justice sector and related terms; 'security sector', 'rule of law', 'good governance'
• Human Rights Based needs assessment, programme design, implementation, as well as monitoring & evaluation
• Programming tools & checklists (including benchmarks & indicators of human rights change)
• Case studies from national contexts as well as international field missions (including conflict and post-conflict)
• Teamwork, advocacy, strategic partnerships and consulting opportunities
For the above programme in 2014 IHRN is offering a scholarship to enable a suitably qualified person to participate who would not otherwise be able to do so.
An IHRN Scholarship is designed for an individual from a non-OECD country, an activist or someone working with a civil society organisation in an area relevant to the training programme. IHRN scholarships are not generally offered to officials of inter-governmental organisations or state bodies.
