During one week, ten Chinese, Indonesian, Vietnamese, and Iranian university teachers and scholars deepened their knowledge and expertise of UN human rights mechanisms during a customized training course co-organized with the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights of the University of Oslo.
Participants had the opportunity, via lectures by experts, interactive exercises, and direct observation of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process and the work of UN treaty bodies, to familiarize themselves with the UN human rights machinery.
This customized training course is an off spring of our traditional annual course Leading in the UN Human Rights Council.
