The International Center for the Promotion of Human Rights (CIPDH-UNESCO) presents the second edition of its International Course on Human Rights.
The central topic of this course will be: “Human Rights Investigation. Fact-finding, documenting and monitoring” and will be held at the UNESCO Observatory Villa Ocampo in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from 29 October to 2nd November 2018.
This international course intends to tackle the particularities and differences that exist among investigation, fact-finding, documenting and monitoring human rights violations (individual or systematic) through case studies and the analysis of new technologies and methodologies.
The teachers and speakers are experts, public officials and activists that will share their experiences and thoughts with the selected participants. The course will integrate various dynamic learning approaches, such as simulation exercises, group discussions, traditional teaching and interviews, among others. Sessions will revolve around specific real-life cases of human rights investigations with the participation of actors that were involved in them.
