The 2019 Summer Course on International Protection of Human Rights is the 28th edition of the intensive human rights programme organized in Poznań, Poland. More than 500 graduates and professionals have attended the Course since 1992.
The Course consists of two parts: an introduction to both the universal and the European systems of human rights protection, followed by a more detailed analysis of the chosen specific thematic area.
In 2019, the focus is on gender in law and practice. This choice reflects current discussions in the field of human rights, and was inspired by feedback received from the Course alumni.
The 2019 edition will maintain the programme’s highest academic standards, while strengthening its policy-oriented approach. During “Expert sessions” the Course participants will have many opportunities to learn from and network with professionals engaged in making gender equality a reality.
