In the framework of the South Programme IV, the European Programme for Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals (HELP) organised on 18 march in Rabat a training of trainers for 20 justice professionals from Morocco and Tunisia, including representatives of ministries and independent public bodies.
The participants were trained to master the online platform and the fundamentals of the HELP methodology as well as the basics of instructional design. The tools provided will enable them to organise and facilitate effective and dynamic training tailored to the context, needs and constraints specific to their country.
The HELP Programme strengthens the capacity of legal professionals to apply human rights standards in their daily work. Currently, HELP offers courses on combating trafficking in human beings and combating violence against women, as well as on refugees and migrant children in Arabic language.
South Programme IV continues assisting Southern Mediterranean countries in building a common legal space together with the EU, with a focus on reforming Southern Mediterranean countries’ legislation and reinforcing their democratic governance institutions as well as accompanying reform processes. Good governance building, strengthening rule of law and respecting, protecting and fulfilling human rights are strong pillars of the South Programme. Additionally, particular attention is given to activities combatting gender-based violence against women and girls.
