Erbil, 13 November 2016 – The UNAMI Human Rights Office (HRO) conducted a training course for youth leaders in Ninewa on Community Reconciliation and Social Cohesion on 11 and 12 November 2016, enabling 35 course participants to be acquainted with accountability and reconciliation principles, both on the theoretical and practical levels.

The HRO trainers initiated discussions with the youth leaders of Ninewa Governorate through a training course to participants from two existing entities that have extensive access across Ninewa, vis-à-vis the Provincial Council Network of youth and the independent, non-partisan Ninewa Network for Youth.
