The Global Legal Network has the pleasure to announce that a training course on the Protection of Human Rights and the Environment will be held from 2 to 6 July in Geneva by the Academy of International Law and Human Rights.
You will find more information on the flyer and on the academy's website, including cost, registration deadlines, methodology, benefits and content of the course.
The course will explore the international legal framework for the protection of human rights and the environment and provide participants with in-depth knowledge of how to address environmental degradation through existing human rights mechanisms. Discussions will focus on toxic waste and business accountability.
This training course is designed for staff of NGOs, national environmental and human rights institutions, UN bodies and other international organizations, as well as representatives of governments and members of academia, with a 30 percent discount for PhD and master students.
It is an executive training course: it does not provide academic credits. However, the course will expose students to people working in the field and they will have the opportunity to visit a hearing of the Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee and the Human Rights Council.
