Dear colleagues, The International Service for Human Rights is currently recruiting participants for the 16th annual Geneva Training Course in International Human Rights Law and Diplomacy (GTC), from 10 March to 25 April 2003. The Geneva Training Course in International Human Rights Law and Diplomacy is a seven-week course which runs parallel to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights. Our primary objective is to enable human rights defenders world-wide to make effective use of the UN and other international human rights procedures. The training is unique in its inter-disciplinary approach, addressing theoretical aspects of international human rights and humanitarian law, as well as procedures and practice of intergovernmental mechanisms, in particular the UN Commission on Human Rights. Focus is placed on the practical role NGOs can play in these procedures. We are looking for candidates who are actively involved with the human rights organization/institute that supports their candidature, and who are committed to continuing their work together in the region using the information and skills acquired during the training. A good knowledge of English is essential since this is the working language of the Course. Candidates will have to seek their own funding for the Course, although the International Service will provide constant support, including a contact list of regular donors, in this process. Participation is limited to a maximum of 35 individuals. For further information and an application form please contact Franziska Surber or Francesca Scott at <email@example.com> or visit our web-site at http://www.ishr.ch. Applications should be sent to Franziska Surber, Head of the Training Department, at the Secretariat of the International Service before 28 August 2002.
