Norwegian Centre for Human Rights (NCHR)
2017 Introductory Course in Human Rights
4 - 9 September 2017

Deadline for early bird registration: 23 May 2017 

NCHR is pleased to announce the 2017 Introductory Course in International Human Rights. This course seeks to provide participants with introductory knowledge of international human rights that will broaden their perspectives and opportunities for integrating human rights principles, standards and approaches into their daily work.
With a rich list of contributors from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, this course is suitable for anyone seeking a quality introduction to human rights. Lecturers include Ola Mestad (professor, head of the Norwegian OECD national contact point and former Chair of the Council of Ethics of the Norwegian Pension Fund Global), Heiner Bielefeldt (professor and former UN special rapporteur on Freedom of Religion of Belief) Sriprapha Petcharameseree (professor of Mahidol University, former representative from Thailand to the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights) and Asbjørn Rachlew (Police Superintendent/PhD) among others.

The full programme can be consulted here.

Registration fee
• Early bird (before 23 May 2017): 5,000 NOK. Price includes 2 dinners and 5 lunches.
• Regular price (after 23 May 2017): 7,500 NOK. Price includes 2 dinners and 5 lunches.

Grants for participants with limited financial resources. There is a limited amount of grants available, that will be awarded based on the following criteria: economic situation (we prioritize participants from institutions with limited financial resources in low or middle income countries), prospects for further use of human rights knowledge, English-language skills, commitment to reading distributed training material in advance, geographical location (we aim for variation), and gender balance. These grants will cover roundtrip airplane tickets to Oslo, course registration fee, and accommodation in Oslo. Participants, however, are expected to cover other expenses themselves, such as visa application fee and food beyond the common meals. 

To apply for a grant please send a one-page letter to nchr-academy@nchr.uio.no describing how you fit the above criteria. The letter should be sent together with your CV and a completed application form.
