People interested in taking courses on human rights may wish to consult a
recently updated page that lists more than 60 short courses and summer schools from 2008 to 2009. Some are very general introductions. Others are very specialized courses on indigenous peoples, discrimination, women’s rights, and more. Courses are available in locations around the world, including Africa, Europe, the Americas, Asia, and the Middle East. All these can be found at the web site.

Idowu Ajibade, from Nigeria, who did the hard work of updating this page. She has just joined Human Rights Tool’s small team of dedicated volunteers.

Some very interesting courses that Human Rights Tools would like to highlight:

1. CLOSING SOON: Monitoring economic, social and cultural rights. The Graduate Institute for International and Development Studies in Geneva (IHEID), in cooperation with HURIDOCS, is organizing a new course on monitoring and documenting economic, social and cultural rights. It will take place in Geneva, 5 – 9 May 2008. This exciting and much-needed course will be timed to match the second week of the ESC Committee, so you should be able to attend both with the same plane ticket! There are still a few slots for paying participants, but you must apply before 3 March 2008.

2. CLOSING SOON: Video advocacy course. The Video Advocacy Institute, the first of its kind, is an innovative program that trains human rights defenders to successfully integrate video advocacy into their social change campaigns. When: July 19 – August 2 2008, in Montreal, Canada. Application deadline is 2 March 2008.

3. CLOSING SOON: Transitional justice francophone Rabat fellowship program. Transitional justice refers to a range of approaches that societies undertake to reckon with legacies of widespread or systematic human rights abuse as they move from a period of violent conflict or oppression towards peace and democracy. The International Center for Transitional Justice’s francophone Rabat fellowship program will be running from May 2nd to the 25th. It runs for 10 weeks and ICTJ takes in charge the full cost of participation of each participant (including the visa and airfare). Application deadline is 25 February 2008.

4. Justice sector reform, Human rights fieldwork IHRN is organizing two courses.

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
