Equitas offers annually this one of a kind training program in Montreal, Canada, that builds human rights knowledge and skills, attitudes and behaviors. Participants from about 50 countries are equipped with innovative tools that enable them to enhance their action to defend and promote human rights and democratic values in their home contexts. The training takes place in a safe Canadian environment ensuring participants can openly express themselves in a non-threatening environment.
“This training program is an important Canadian contribution to the spread of human rights and democratic principles around the world,” says Ian Hamilton, Executive Director of Equitas. “Through the IHRTP, participants gain greater confidence in their abilities as well as the skills and motivation to become effective human rights champions upon their return home”.
