International Summer School on Human Rights

We are pleased to inform that the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights is organizing the 20th International Summer School on Human Rights. The School will be held in Warsaw-Miedzeszyn, Poland, between 20 and 27 June.

The School is intended for human rights activists, university teachers and representatives of institutions from all levels of public administration dealing with human rights issues from Central, Eastern European and CIS countries. We regret to inform you that our offer is limited only to those who have not yet participated in our Summer or Winter Schools. The program is open to university graduates or final-year university students. Our program combines lectures and workshops on the historical and philosophical background of human rights, domestic and international systems of human rights protection as well as the applicability of rights of primary importance (see programme attached).

The lectures will be given by renowned professors, university teachers and experts in the field of human rights and international law. English and Russian are the working languages of our Summer School. The ability to communicate freely in one of the above is required.

Participants (65 people in total) will be chosen by a selection committee on a competitive basis. Out of 65 participants, 30 can attend the School free of charge (organizers will cover accommodation in double rooms and meals during the course).

The other 35 people may participate in the School under the condition that they cover expenses themselves (please see the application form).

Lectures and workshops, translation of classes, educational materials, medical insurance while on the territory of Poland are free of charge to all participants provided that they attend all classes.
