UNAMI HRO holds training workshop for Youth

On 28 and 29 November 2018, UNAMI Human Rights Office (HRO) held a two-day training workshop for Youths in Baghdad. The participants were from Baghdad, Najaf, Karbala and Diyala Governorates. A total of 31 participants (13 males and 18 females) from various backgrounds and organisations such as the Bar Association, persons with disabilities, ethnic and religious minority groups, academics, university students and human rights activists attended the workshop.

The main aim of the training was to raise youths’ awareness about human rights and their role in the promotion and protection of human rights in Iraq. Some of the sessions were: UNAMI HRO Mandate and different human rights thematic areas, including national and international human rights protection mechanisms, rights of women, persons with disabilities, rights of ethnic and religious minorities, the Role of the Youth in Accessing the UN Human Rights systems, transitional justice and national reconciliation, rule of law and administration of justice, protection of civilians in armed conflict and Iraq’s state reporting obligations under the various human rights treaties that Iraq is party to and non-treaty based mechanisms.

Participants were also made to explore ways of strengthening further engagements and collaboration between them, UNAMI HRO and other partners and stakeholders.
