The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (CIDH) and the Institute of Public Policies on Human Rights of MERCOSUR (IPPDH) have posted a call for the 3rd edition of the International Course on Public Policies in Human Rights.
According to the announcement, the course seeks to train relevant actors of the Americas on the human rights approach in public policies. It adopts a perspective that recognizes the advances and challenges in the region, and explores the potential that the human rights approach poses for state institutions.
The course will combine theoretical and practical training in the fields of international human rights law, the Inter-American System for the Protection of Human Rights, social sciences, and public administration, with the presentation of practical experiences of high impact for the guarantee of rights implemented in the States of the region in recent years.
The course is designed for government officials responsible for the design, direction, execution and evaluation of public policies, members of organizations and social movements, academics and society in general. There is a quota of 100 participants. The IACHR and the IPPDH will reserve some seats for officials of the OAS member states interested in participating in this course, as well as for people from social movements and civil society.
