Launch – E-Learning course on National Human Rights Institutions, Ombudsman, and Private Security

In cooperation with the technical secretariat of the Ibero-American Federation of Ombudsmen (FIO) and the secretariat of the Network of National Institutions for the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights in the Americas (RINDHCA), we are supporting the training of National Human Rights Institutions in Latin America on "Private Security and Human Rights". To this end, we have created a training course on human rights institutions and private security.

The course provides an in-depth understanding of standards and good practices in the regulation of private security. It specifically addresses NHRIs and their role in the regulation of private military and private security companies. The course is also instructive for other stakeholders such as civil society organisations and human rights defenders.Moderator: Cecilia Bernuy, Technical Secretariat, RINDHCA
