Human Rights Training Seminar in Bawnogue Enterprise Centre

Home News Human Rights Training Seminar in Bawnogue Enterprise Centre

Many community activists took part in a human rights training seminar in Bawnogue Enterprise Centre on 18th January organised by the Rights Platform. The seminar forms part of a Human Rights Training programme for community organisations which will be implemented over the coming months.


The event in Bawnogue was a general introduction to human rights concepts, principles and instruments, with a focus on using a human rights approach to issues of poverty and social exclusion. Inputs were made by the Rights Platform and the Participation & Practice of Rights (PPR) from Belfast, who have an acknowledged expertise in human rights activism.

The seminar was very participative and this enabled people to link the needs of socially excluded communities to specific human rights breaches, and to familiarise themselves with appropriate rights-based approaches. The feedback from participants was very positive, most people found it interesting, challenging but easy to engage with.

The next phase of the training will concentrate on selected target groups, including women and Travellers, and will be a more intensive process over a sustained period. All going well, at the end of the project there should be a considerable expertise in human rights and human rights approaches within the community sector in South Dublin.
