Dear members, Below is a compilation of requests for information sent to the Global Human Rights Education listserv during the past week. At the bottom of each request you will find an e-mail address, so that you can respond to the request directly.

1. LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ABOUT TRAININGS FOR LAWYERS WITH FOCUS ON CEDAW
Dear All, I am seeking information on different trainings that are being organised or facilitated by international organisations or NGOs in different countries for lawyers, with specific focus on application of CEDAW while litigating in the national courts. It would be great if anyone of you have already done it or have materials for such trainings. This will help me to create a database on lawyers training on CEDAW and link with the individuals and organisations for strengthening my own knowledge and skills. There are many lawyers in developing countries and many national groups that work with these lawyers that are keen to know about such resources and knowledge. Looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Gauri Arvind Bhopatkar, E-mail.
