Human Rights Training for Indigenous Civil Society in the Philippines (Philippines, 11th-22nd August, 2003)

 

Human Rights Training for Indigenous Civil Society in the Philippines In Cooperation with the Philippines Association for Intercultural Development (Philippines, 11th-22nd August, 2003)

 

This is the report of a two week training program conducted 11-22 August 2003 in Subic Bay, Philippines by the Diplomacy Training Program in partnership with the Philippines Association for Intercultural Development (PAFID). The training course took place over two-weeks and covered much ground. Training in existing human rights standards and UN mechanisms was complemented by a focus on practical skills and discussion of emerging human rights issues around the environment and intellectual property rights.

 

The feedback from anonymous participant evaluation forms was universally positive, both about the quality of the training and trainers, and about the program content and its practical usefulness. All the participants identified specific ways that the training would either enhance their work or ways that they would apply and share the knowledge and skills gained with their organisations and communities.
