Human rights courses

The Institute for Human Rights has a long experience of hosting a wide range of international courses for students, researchers and professionals.

The Institute for Human Rights has organized intensive short courses in human rights, with internationally renowned human rights experts as teachers.

Between 1991 and 2013, the Advanced Course on the International Protection of Human Rights was arranged annually, providing a general overview of international human rights protection. Numerous active international human rights scholars and practitioners attended this course. The highly acclaimed Advanced Course on Justiciability of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights was arranged on a close to annual basis between 2006–2019. In addition to these, the Institute has focused on offering courses related to specific topics, among them, refugee law, law and development, and realizing human rights through criminal law.

Regrettably, intensive human rights courses could not be arranged in 2020–2022, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. For the time being, there are no plans for arranging further intensive courses.
