Education

We organize courses and workshops to train activists, community leaders and young professionals from different disciplines who are interested in developing new career paths and obtaining the necessary tools to protect the rights of vulnerable sectors, regardless of their initial training.

We aim to create and maintain a Global South community that will be constantly nourished by our work and the work of our students, representing a solid, informed and experienced voice of the Global South.

What is amphibious training?

Dejusticia’s action-research workshops were born from a sense of the need for a pedagogical space for young human rights advocates from the Global South to deepen their research and writing skills and build South-South connections, as well as increase the visibility of their work and writing outside their home countries. In addition, it was premised on the importance of developing space to think about and tools to realize action-research, in the broad sense of simultaneous participation in engaged, rigorous research and political action.

Teaching Materials

To complement our educational and training activities, we develop teaching materials that rely on our research projects, presenting them in a variety of formats to increase their accessibility. The aim is to educate and increase awareness among diverse audiences. For example, in www.hrcases.org, we developed a database of case studies, which we presented in a variety of formats and media. We use these in our workshops and courses to analyze key practices, tactics and strategies that human rights organizations across different regions of the world have implemented to promote social rights.
