The Diplomacy Training Program (DTP) held its 27th Annual Human Rights and Peoples’ Diplomacy Training Program for Human Rights Defenders from October 2-13, 2017. The program was held in partnership with Judicial System Monitoring Program.
The program had 24 participants from over 9 countries that participated in this training. We were warmly welcomed by DTP’s Patron and Founder, the Nobel Peace Laureate and former President, José Ramos-Horta & Australian Ambassador to Timor-Leste H.E Peter Doyle.
The participants were fortunate to learn from experienced trainers from the UN and WITNESS, and had the opportunity to do a lobbying and campaigning exercises with Australian Embassy staff based in Timor-Leste. The participants also delved into the history and lessons of Timor-Leste as they spoke to the victims’ families of the Liquiça massacre and had field visits to Centro Nacional Chega and Resistance Museum.
