Training of trainers of indigenous rights defenders

This capacities transfer program involves a 15-day training session in Geneva (Switzerland) held once a year, whereby 7 indigenous participants have the opportunity to improve their knowledge in the area of promotion and defence of the rights of Indigenous Peoples. The themes of the capacities transfer program include, for example: an introduction and explanation of human rights methodology; the history of international law and the international law of Indigenous Peoples; documentation research; analysis of data and summary information; the promotion and protection of human rights , etc. At the end of the residency, participants decide on a project they will set up upon returning to their community. The goal is for the participants to become multiplier agents within their community and their organization. They also transmit the knowledge and expertise acquired during their residency by organizing training on documentation and on human rights within their organization and their community. This training in the field receives technical support from Docip.
