Summer School on 'Protecting Human Rights through United Nations Mechanisms'

Dear Colleague,

The Human Rights Law Centre at the University of Nottingham is pleased to announce the 2010 Summer School on ‘Protecting Human Rights through United Nations Mechanisms’.   

The Summer School will be held from 28 June – 2 July 2010 (Monday – Friday) and will be led by key experts in the field. The focus throughout will be practical and applied: the Summer School will give participants an insider’s understanding of the mechanisms and will equip them with the tools to best use the UN system for the protection of human rights.  The School will have sessions devoted to the human rights treaty bodies (the reporting and individual communications procedures), the Human Rights Council’s Universal Period Review Procedure, Special Procedures (UN human rights special rapporteurs, etc.), and the work of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and its field presences.

The Summer School is designed to benefit professionals in non-governmental organisations, national human rights institutions, government, international governmental organisations, field operations, and interested academic and students. Further details on the 2010 Summer School, including contact details and names of expert speakers, are contained in the attached brochure. Details can also be found at

We would like to encourage you to distribute this announcement to your colleagues and other relevant organisations and persons who would find this training useful. 

Kind regards,

Professor Michael O’Flaherty

Human Rights Law Centre, Co-Director
