Professional Certificate in the Promotion and Implementation of Human Rights
4th - 8th November 2019, London, UK


In 2018 alone, Human Rights abuses constantly made headlines on far too many newspapers and news show. From population displacement in South East Asia to state purges in the Middle East, from resource deprivation in several Latin American countries to major privacy breaches across the West, the list goes on.. However, whilst the International Community is actively discussing these issues, significant challenges remain regarding the efficient promotion and implementation of such rights. In light with this global context, it is imperative that policymakers and stakeholders enhance their capacity to effectively promote and implement Human Rights across the world.


Course Overview

This course offers the opportunity, for interested organisations and individuals, to not only gain a better understanding of Human Rights as a legal and political issue but through discussing best practices and implementation strategies, to highlight the challenges faced by the community and some possible solutions.

Interactive learning will support participants’ understanding of key themes around human rights, such as the impact of international frameworks, the consideration of local circumstances such as public emergencies and prioritising human rights for development. By addressing a range of topics and examining important legal instruments, participants will leave equipped to develop a national action plan for improving human rights, which will consider resource requirements and be supported by strong mechanisms for implementation and evaluation.

A comprehensive analysis of the mechanisms behind human rights planning will be provided, with subjects to be discussed including:

  • International frameworks and legal instruments on human rights
  • Civil and political rights
  • Human rights and development
  • Human rights and fragile/emergency conditions
  • Gender and human rights
  • Developing a national action plan
  • Monitoring human rights and the plan

Experts in the field will lead this training through interactive workshops, lectures and best practice case studies, fostering innovation, creating learning and networking amongst peers.
