STRATEGIC HUMAN RIGHTS LITIGATION 

 A training course at Central European University, Budapest,

Hungary, July 10-14, 2017
------------------------------------------------------------
Human rights litigation is one of the methods by which civil society
organizations can bring about social change. This course for human
rights professionals will develop the skills and knowledge needed to
successfully bring cases to the regional human rights systems and the
UN Treaty bodies, and to use those cases to achieve practical change.
Participants will be invited to provide information on concrete cases
that they are involved in which will be discussed during the course.
The course encourages participants to approach human rights litigation
strategically, viewing litigating a human rights case as one step in
the process of achieving social change. It includes modules that
examine the steps involved in strategic litigation, such as case
selection, client care, and forum choice. It also uses case studies to
explore how to build a strong evidential record in support of the
case, how to develop campaigning and advocacy to raise awareness of
the issues involved, and how to implement a successful judgment.

Our former participants said:
“I'm not sure if I ever will have an opportunity again in my life to
learn so much in such a short amount of time. Truly inspirational!"
"Trying myself in the role of a mediator in the framework of real-play
and group exercises was, perhaps, the most challenging and, at the
same time, the most enriching experience during the course. For me it
was a unique opportunity to experiment with different mediation
techniques, elaborate my own mediation style and enlarge my outlook in
general."
"The course was very useful as it not only provided theoretical
knowledge but also practical tips, actual display/practice by the
course teachers/facilitators, and reading material beside making
available the slides and tools for later use by the participants. That
kind of makes it awesome!"
"As an experienced person in local conflicts resolutions, the course
has provided not only new skills in the area of mediation but also an
asset to my future initiatives. Now as I can assume that mediation is
used at various levels, I will use this new tool to help finding
solution for disputes within my professional environment and
elsewhere."
