Human Rights Training Program brought together approximately 126
participants from all over the world. Participants were divided
into eight groups of approximately 15 members for most of the program.
The Program comprised two French and six English language speaking
groups. Participants were divided according to professional background,
types of organizations and groups were made in such a way that members
from the same country of origin would be in different groups in
order to promote diversity in all the groups. Each group had a facilitator
and other groups had a facilitator and a co-facilitator, the facilitators
were there to give guidance and to support the IHRTP. The main method
which was used during the entire program was the participatory approach
method where participants were involved in the establishment of
activities, working through the case-studies and above all giving
feedback on the improvement of the program.
In certain instances
participants were brought together to share their experiences and
to share what they had learnt during the IHRTP. This also promoted
networking amongst participants.
The entire program
was divided into 8 streams. The idea of streams was adopted in order
for participants to easily follow the participatory approach system
used by Equitas. The streams were divided as follows:
Stream 1: Introductions
Stream 2: Starting from where we are
Stream 3: Building a culture of human rights
Stream 4: Seeking common ground
Stream 5: The global human rights context
Stream 6: Human rights standards and mechanisms
Stream 7: Educational evaluation
Stream 8: Human rights monitoring and advocacy
