Advanced Human Rights Courses: 2016 and 2017
The Advanced Human Rights Courses Programme (AHRC) was established in 2000, and was previously known as the Good Governance Programme (GGP). The Programme consists of annual advanced short courses dealing with issues pertinent to human rights, development and good governance in Africa.
Each course, lasting one week, is presented by local and international experts in the respective fields, with a careful balance between academics and practitioners. Human rights and development professionals at all levels often have to grapple with the multi-disciplinary challenges presented by the huge gap between human rights in practice and human rights in theory.
These courses are primarily aimed at governmental officials, managers and staff of civil society organisations, judges and magistrates, legal practitioners, staff of international and intergovernmental organisations, as well as academics from Universities in Africa. Participants from all over the world are nevertheless, welcome to apply. Masters and doctoral students wishing to deepen their knowledge or expertise in a particular area of relevance to their study or research may also apply. Between 20 and 30 participants are admitted to each course.
The following courses will be presented during 2017:
