KHRP Gives Training on Women’s Rights and International Mechanisms

KHRP Legal and Research Interns Marina Themistocleous and Amy Pepper visited Leicester on 17 January 2008 to participate in a training seminar entitled Global Issues-Local Voices: How Women’s Organisations Use International Instruments. The session was organised by the Fatima Women’s Network, and hosted by Zarin Hainsworth from Serene Communications.

The workshops consisted of information and skills based groups, including a talk about International Conventions ands Agencies given by Zarin Hainsworth, a session on UN Special Rapporteurs, taken by Shila Behjat from the Baha’i Office for the Advancement of Women UK, and also a session on How to Link International Law with UK Law and Policy – Lobbying Sills, given by Dan Wheatley from the Baha’i Office for External Affairs.

Ms Themistocleous and Ms Pepper held one of the four workshops on How to Use International Mechanisms. This consisted of a talk on how KHRP as an organisation has utilised international instruments, and an interactive session, where the participants undertook writing letters to a UN Special Rapporteur with regard to a factual scenario. The workshops were well received by those who attended, which included representatives from Faith in People with HIV, the Race Equality Centre and the Women’s National Commission.
