Training Courses on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights: New Course on Understanding Economic, Social and Cultural Rights:

Training Course on Monitoring Economic, Social and Cultural Rights:

  • UPDATE: Applications for the May 2010 session of the Training Course on Monitoring Economic, Social and Cultural Rights are now closed! We thank the over 300 applicants for their interest in our Course!
  • In recent years, monitoring economic, social and cultural rights has become the modality to mainstream the realization of these rights as equally important to that of civil and political rights and thus rightly acknowledge their status as integral part of human rights law. This five-day training course answers to the increasing need of organizations to acquire know-how and enhance their capacity and knowledge in order to effectively pursue the monitoring of economic, social and cultural rights.

Course Aim and Objectives:

  • The course will provide staff from small and medium organisations with the know-how to get started in monitoring economic, social and cultural rights (ESC rights), and the in-depth knowledge to enhance their ESC rights monitoring work.

At the end of the training, the participants will be:

  • Familiar with the content of economic, social and cultural rights;
  • Able to devise realistic strategies for monitoring ESC rights and documenting the violation/realisation of an ESC right of particular concern to them or their organization;
  • Able to present findings effectively, and devise an advocacy strategy which makes use of the international human rights mechanisms.
