A team of the Global Campus of Human Rights headed by the Secretary-General Manfred Nowak, undertook a participatory assessment mission to Dili, Timor-Leste, at the end of January 2019, as a first step in the implementation of the project “Development of human rights education and research activities at the Universidade Nacional Timor Lorosa’e (UNTL)”.
The international jury of the Contest, comprised of renowned international photographers such as Jim Marshall, Maika Elan, Carloman Macidiano Céspedes Riojas and Frank Finance-Madureira, as well as activists such Joeri Kempen, will soon give their vote to the best picture.
With reference to a prospective action under the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) and its Country Based Support Schemes (CBSS) entitled “Development of human rights education and research activities at the Universidade Nacional Timor Lorosa’e (UNTL in Dili)”, EIUC is looking to identify a qualified individual to fill the position of Project Coordinator, conditional upon successfully securing the grant to implement the action.
In the framework of the Global Campus Exchange of Lecturers, the Master’s Programme in Human Rights & Democratisation in Asia (APMA, GC Asia Pacific) together with the European Regional Master’s Programme in Democracy and Human Rights in South East Europe (ERMA, GC South East Europe) hosted the joint Seminar "Lessons in Peace, Conflict and Self Determination: From the Former Yugoslavia to Southeast Asia".
Manfred Nowak, Secretary General of EIUC/Global Campus of Human Rights, is very concerned about Turkey’s detention and prosecution of academics, journalists, and civil society activists with links to the Anatolia Culture Association (Anadolu Kültür) and Osman Kavala's case. One of them is Meltem Aslan who was graduated in our European Master's Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation - EMA / Global Campus Europe in 2004 and she is the companion of Murat Çelikkan, a prominent Turkish HRD, who was awarded the 2018 Civil Rights Defender Award.
