July 15, 2020: Publication of “Evaluating Human Rights Training Activities: Workshop Guide”

Equitas has a new publication available to assist your human rights education and training work!

Jointly published with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), Evaluating Human Rights Training Activities: Workshop Guide supports the design and delivery of a two-and-a-half-day workshop aimed at strengthening the capacity of human rights trainers to conduct effective evaluation of their training activities, so as to maximize their impact. Equitas and OHCHR are planning to develop an online version of the workshop as well.

This Guide builds on the joint OHCHR/Equitas “Evaluating Human Rights Education Training Activities: A Handbook for Human Rights Education” (2011), which provides a wealth of practical tools to facilitate evaluation processes throughout the human rights training cycle–planning, design, organization, delivery and follow-up, whether training is delivered face-to-face or online.

Access the Guide here and please find copyright information for this publication on the second page of the document.

Below, you will find a variety of successful education tools on four major areas where we are focused on sharing our expertise:

  • Gender equality
  • Child and youth participation
  • Building the capacity of human rights defenders
  • Evaluation of human rights education
