Advanced Course, International Protection of Human Rights, 17-28 August 2009, Finland
The 2009 Advanced Course on the International Protection of Human
Rights will be organized between 17 and 28 August, in Turku/Åbo,
Finland. Application deadline: 20 April 2009.
The course aims at providing a profound insight into, and analysis of, the system of international human rights protection in the light of contemporary problems and relevant case law. Students should have a law degree (or equivalent) and a good basic knowledge of human rights law. About 30 applicants will be accepted. The course fee, which includes lodging at the University’s guesthouse (dormitory standard), course materials, and two receptions, is EUR 1,300. The fee is EUR 1,000 for those who make their own housing arrangements.
[Note from We Can Do editor: In looking at the official web site for this advanced human rights course, I did not see any mention of specific disability content (for example, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities). Students with a specific interest in disability rights in developing countries may wish to communicate directly with Ms. Johanna Bondas via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss more carefully whether the course will suit their needs. Students with disabilities also will wish to inquire with Ms. Johanna Bondas about what provisions the university has in place to accommodate their needs.]
I learned of this program via Joan Durocher, who obtained this announcement from Ms. Johanna Bondas.
