Equal Status and Human Rights of Women in Southeast Asia
Staff members from national human rights institutions and academic institutions in Southeast Asia are currently taking part in a blended learning training course on the Equal Status and Human Rights of Women.
The program is being coordinated by the Raoul Wallenberg Institute, with assistance from the APF and financial support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
An online training component, which runs from 9 May - 3 June 2011, will provide participants with an introduction to regional and international instruments and mechanisms related to human rights of women.
Following the online sessions, participants will attend face-to-face training in Bangkok, from 27 June - 1 July 2011.
The workshop will aim to build more in-depth knowledge and skills on the practical application of these instruments and mechanisms, especially in relation to multiple discrimination; violence against women and children; and trafficking of human beings.
