The 3rd edition of Venice School of Human Rights will take place from 28 June till 7 July 2012.
The goal of the Venice School is to allow its participants to be updated on the state of the art debate on human rights issues and to stimulate a reflection on the actual challenges faced by human rights actors worldwide.
After a first session common to all participants dedicated to a general introduction on international systems of protection of human rights and related mechanisms, the programme will develop into the following three thematic clusters:
- Bussiness and Human Rights
- Development and Human Rights
- Transitional Justice and Fight against Impunity
Online registration is open until 30 April 2012 at http://www.eiuc.org/veniceschool/
