Dear Colleagues,

The Helsinki Committee in Poland and the Helsinki Foundation for Human
Rights are organizing the 11th International Summer School on Human

The School is intended for human rights activists, teachers and young
lawyers from Central, Eastern European and CIS countries.

Our program combines lectures and discussions on the historical and
philosophical background of human rights, domestic systems of protection
of human rights, international systems of protection of human rights, and
aspects of some selected rights:  rights of minorities, rights of refugees
etc. (See: attached program.)

English, Russian and Polish are the languages of our Summer School.
Ability to communicate well in one of the above languages is required.

The organizers will cover full accommodation (in double rooms) and
materials.

The School will be held in Warsaw-Miedzeszyn, Poland, on 9-16 September
2000.

Please find below an application form which you should send back to our
Foundation by 30 June 2000 (deadline) by fax, e-mail or post (please
