Call for Applications
The Diplomacy Training Program (DTP) and INSEC Nepal are calling for applications for DTP’s 24th Annual Human Rights and People’s Diplomacy Training Program for Human Rights Defenders from the Asia-Pacific Region and Indigenous Australia.
This annual, comprehensive human rights and advocacy training course is the longest established human rights training program held in the region. It builds knowledge of international human rights standards and the UN system, and their relevance to advocacy on a wide range of human rights concerns. There are intensive sessions on human rights and development, advocacy and media skills.
Civil society advocacy has a vital role to play in closing the gap between agreed human rights standards and their implementation. The advocacy and engagement of civil society is a key driver of better governance, of accountability. Participation is recognised as essential to sustainable development outcomes, and effective participation requires both knowledge and skills.
This course will increase the capacity of civil society advocates to engage effectively with governments and others – locally, nationally and internationally. It will equip participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to engage in dialogue and will build their support networks.
