Human Rights Based Approach: Strengthen People's Power
Dates & venues
Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) is a conceptual framework for the process of development that is normatively based on international human rights standards. Such an approach integrates these standards and principles into processes of program development in order to promote and protect human rights.
The Training Course:
Discrimination and exclusion with regard to access to resources and decision-making are often root causes for poverty and may contribute to tensions and conflicts. During the past two decades, human rights have been increasingly incorporated into the development agenda, including through the adoption of a human rights-based approach. This approach seeks to analyze discrimination and inequalities that lie at the heart of development problems and to transform these practices and the underlying power dynamics. It is a paradigm shift, as it shifts the notion of development away from charity to one based on rights and corresponding obligations.
This paradigm shift, which led to the HRBA stems from the experience of many NGOs and development organizations that the traditional welfare model of development cooperation is not sustainable.
During this training course, you will acquire the knowledge of fundamental concepts of the human rights-based approach to development including advocacy and social accountability. It will provide you with the requisite knowledge and skills which will help you strengthen the design and implementation of programs using a human rights-based approach.
The course is designed for everyone working in civil society organizations who wants to learn the foundations of the human rights-based approach and build critical skills for designing programs from a human rights perspective.
