Professional Training Series

This series consists of handbooks and manuals intended to raise awareness of international standards. It is directed at audiences that are able to influence the human rights situation in their countries. Although primarily designed to support OHCHR training activities, these publications also serve as practical tools for organizations that provide human rights education to professional groups.

The training manuals in this series are, by design, adaptable to the needs and experience, in terms of culture, education and history, of a range of potential audiences within the target group. Where appropriate, information on effective pedagogical techniques is included to help trainers use the manuals as effectively as possible. Each manual or handbook is prepared with the assistance of experts and is subject to extensive external review and appraisal.
