Human rights education
This publication constitutes the second part of the Reporting to the United Nations Human Rights Treaty Bodies: Training Guide.
Part II – the Notes for Facilitators – closely follows the structure of Part I. It has been designed to assist facilitators in preparing and delivering a training course on treaty reporting, intended ideally for relatively small groups of a maximum of 25 participants. After two preliminary sections containing suggestions for, respectively, planning a training course and organizing its opening session, Part II proposes interactive training sessions covering the information contained in all the chapters of Part I. A closing session is also proposed. The training sessions comprise a mix of computer slide presentations and group activities, and include different training components: facilitator’s notes, session plans, presentations, videos, quizzes and so forth. The sessions are based on the OHCHR training methodology for human rights training. This methodology is interactive and promotes a participatory approach. It is important that facilitators respect and use this approach to encourage enriching discussions and exchange of information and experience with and between the participants.
