Dili, Timor-Leste

November / December, 2012

This program has concluded

It is against this dynamic background that the Diplomacy Training Program’s flagship human rights education program, the 22nd Annual Regional Human Rights and People’s Diplomacy Training, took place in 2012. Held in Dili, Timor-Leste from 26 November – 10 December 2012, the Program, bringing together leading community activists from across the region, sought to harness and enhance opportunities for civil society engagement in and influence over these pressing human rights issues. This year, twenty-one participants from 10 different countries across the Asia-Pacific region completed the 17-day intensive training program. Civil society representatives from Timor-Leste, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Southern Thailand, India’s state of Nagaland, Indonesia and West Papua attended the course. The Program was notable for the participation of DTP’s first ever human rights advocate from Samoa, and for the first female advocate from the Chittagong Hill Tract in Bangladesh. Importantly, the course also saw a significant representation from Pacific Island countries, and from the host nation of Timor-Leste.
