Spring 2012 Training Series:

“Tools for HR Practice”

The Training Series provides Kennedy School students and members of the Harvard community with the opportunity to participate in application-oriented sessions for a wide range of skills related to human rights practice. Each session will provide an introduction to a key area of practice, such as advocacy, data collection, analysis, education and planning.

Each training session will be carried out by a skilled practitioner, providing a unique opportunity to learn about the often unwritten skills of human rights practice.

Learners who participate in at least five of the seven training sessions have the option to receive a “Certificate of Participation” from the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy.
