Now in its 15th year, this annual IHRN training programme aims at enhancing the skills of justice sector personnel, consultants, managers etc., in applying Human Rights Based Approaches to Justice Sector Reform.  The programme is designed for people working in the justice sector (with state or non-state institutions) or undertaking Rule of law/Governance assignments (e.g. UN, EU, CoE and bi-lateral donors) as well as justice sector personnel wishing to adapt their expertise for international consultancy work.
