Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The Train–the–Trainers Workshop is jointly organized by the Center for Human Rights of Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia, and the European Training and Research Center for Human Rights and Democracy (ETC), Austria, with the support of the Austrian Development Agency (ADA). The Workshop will bring together 30 participants involved in human rights education from East Africa. It will be undertaken based on the Manual on Human Rights Education – Understanding Human Rights (3rd Ed.). The Workshop will focus on good governance, rule of law, rights of women, rights of the child, democracy, human rights education, and international criminal law. There will be six trainers, three from Africa and three from Austria.

Objectives of the Workshop will be to:

  • Enhance the capacity of human rights educators in East Africa through a training programme, introducing contemporary thematic issues and methodological approaches; 
  • Integrate African perspectives in human rights education; 
  • Ensure participants benefit from each other’s experiences and network, for the same purpose, after the workshop; 
  • Introduce the Manual on Human Rights Education—Understanding Human Rights (3rd ed.) and its innovative methodology; and 
  • Make available materials for use by participants after the workshop; 


There will be 30 participants from Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The participants shall be trainers in national human rights institutions, academia, justice sectors (courts, the police ...), governmental organizations, and non- 1 governmental organizations. The selection of participants will be gender- balanced. With a view to ensuring sustainability, the trainees shall be “multipliers”: they should be able to spread the message by providing basic and advanced human rights trainings within their fields of activity. Hence, to be selected for participation, applicants need to demonstrate adequate level of participation in human rights education in their own country and fields of activity.

Hi Nura Suleiman,

Thanks for posting such notice! Please let me know if one of the Nepalese from Asia can be  considered to apply in this ToT though this call is clearly encourages to apply the eligible candidates only from Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda

You may please inform me at in any relevant trainings that could help to enhance my capabilities from participating on conflict transformation into peace, human rights, rule of law, good governance once you organize to Asian countries as Nepal is currently facing many exposed and latent problems in the name of transition .
