Human Rights Capacity Building Project in Turkey (May 2004-September 2005)

This project aims at strengthening the awareness on international standards and mechanisms for protection of human rights among members of the judiciary, government officials and NGO representatives besides strengthening academic capacity in the field of human rights. In this context, the project activities include training programmes for judges and prosecutors on the international covenants and the European Convention on Human Rights and training for government officials and representatives of NGOs on state party reporting to the UN human rights treaty bodies. The project is implemented in partnership with Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law (RWI) with the support from Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
