The aim of this training is to enable human rights defenders to independently carry out objective human rights monitoring activities, based on international standards, with a solid understanding of safety and security issues that might arise during these activities.

During the training, special attention will be paid to using digital tools to verify evidence of human rights violations. The training is based on interactive adult learning techniques. The training sessions will combine theory and practice and participants will be engaged in role play scenarios.

ODIHR will select participants on a competitive basis. Selected participants for the training will also be eligible for ODIHR’s follow-up activities that focus on supporting monitoring of human rights defenders’ work in the field with expertise and capacity building activities.
