Arab Institute and HREA launch 21st edition of Anabtawi summer school online

Tunis, 10 April 2011 -- For the third consecutive year an on-line component has been added to the 21st edition of "Anabtawi", the summer school for Arab human rights defenders. Anabtawi traditionally consists of a two-week intensive training workshop that takes place in Tunis annually and is organised by the Arab Institute for Human Rights (AIHR).

HREA and the AIHR added the pre-course on-line phase to Anabtawi two years ago in order to save time during the summer school by introducing participants to basic human rights knowledge on-line so that during the summer course more emphasis could be placed on skills development and strategising. The on-line phase also allows for more reflection and in-depth engagement with the theory and background of human rights mechanisms and human rights law.

Fifty participants from 14 countries in the Middle East and North Africa participate in six weeks of intensive on-line courses that began on 9 April and will conclude on 27 May. The courses introduce participants to the main UN human rights mechanisms, the basics of international humanitarian law and the human rights-based approach, and familiarise them with other Anabtawi participants and the trainers.
