Human Rights Training Program for Indigenous Advocates in the Asia-Pacific Region (Australia, 25th July – 4th August, 2004)

The Diplomacy Training Program’s thematic capacity building program Indigenous People, Human Rights and Development, was held in Darwin, Australia from July 25th – August 4th, 2004.  The program brought together 22 Indigenous educators, advocates and administrators from around Australia and from Indigenous Peoples in Bangladesh (Jumma – Chittagong Hill Tracts); Burma (Karen); India (Nagaland); Papua New Guinea; New Zealand and Indonesia (West Papua).

For ten days participants worked together, shared histories, explored challenges and developed their skills.  Trainers from Sydney and the Northern Territory generously gave their time and expertise. The program was positively evaluated by the participants.
