Brenda Campbell is due to speak at the 'Beyond Law: The UN mechanisms for the protection of human rights' event in early September of this year.
The course, which aims to provide a practical introduction to how United Nations human rights can be used in a domestic setting, is suitable both for human rights professionals and for those who aspire to work in the field. Drawing on the experience and expertise of the three main speakers, the course introduces practical skills and strategies needed to apply UN human rights in domestic work.
- Mapping UN Human RIghts - an introduction to the UN human rights system and the relevance of UN human rights in a domestic setting.
- UN Human Rights Treaty System - how the treaty system works and how the treaties, institutions and mechanisms can be used in practice.
- UN Human Rights Charter System - An exploration of how the UN human rights Charter system can be used effectively, with a focus on practical skills and strategies.
Appropriate for human rights case workers, solicitors and barristers, NGOs, civil society, campaigners and advanced students, the course is designed to strengthen participants' approach to rights-based issues and enhance their work in the field.
