EUPOL COPPS Mission delivered last week 200 copies of the Human Rights Training Curriculum for Law Enforcement Officials to the Ministry of Interior’s Human Rights and Democracy Unit. The drafting of the manual was coordinated by the Ministry of Interior and carried out in cooperation with Birzeit University.

Chapters include the following topics: freedom of expression; freedom of assembly; prohibition of torture; social, economic and political rights of detainees; and responsibility for executing the unlawful orders of superiors. The curriculum has been designed in such a way as to allow for additional chapters to be added over time.

The delivered copies have been tailored for the needs of trainers, while the edition for trainees will be printed next month. The Mission will follow up on this activity with, amongst others, a Training of Trainers (ToT) in the next mandate, scheduled for the beginning of July.

EUPOL COPPS is the European Union Co-ordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support. The aim of the Mission is to contribute to the establishment of sustainable and effective policing arrangements and to advise Palestinian counterparts on criminal justice and rule of law related aspects under Palestinian ownership.
