Other Programs

My personal impression during the short course was that it was very useful and provided a broader perspective on human rights and the conventions that overshadow it. The discussions were also very interesting, the DTP team was very good at bringing in experts in their fields and always appreciated and answered questions from participants.

About our other programs

Since it was established in 1990, DTP has responded to requests and approaches to develop and deliver specialised capacity building programs for advocates and human rights defenders focused on specific country situations, events or thematic human rights issues. In some cases DTP also tenders for programs and projects, where this is consistent with its strategy of providing support to human rights defenders and their movements for human rights.
