Call for Applications for the Women’s Human Rights Training Institute (WHRTI), 2011-2013 – deadline extended

The Bulgarian Gender Research Foundation (BGRF), in cooperation with its partners the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) and the Network of East-West Women (NEWW), and in cooperation with representatives of the Euroregional Center for Public Initiatives (ECPI) are announcing their Call for Applications for the Fourth Round of the Women’s Human Rights Training Institute (WHRTI), 2011-2013.

The Institute is a unique initiative founded by the three partners in 2004 as a first-of-its-kind programme aimed at building the capacity of young lawyers from Central and Eastern European and the Newly Independent States (CEE/NIS) for litigation on women’s rights issues, including:

  • violence against women,
  • sexual and reproductive health and rights, and
  • employment discrimination.

The WHRTI provides participants in-depth knowledge in women’s human rights protection in the three areas noted above. The WHRTI provides practical skills for development of strategic litigation in the region both at the national and international levels through using regional and universal human rights mechanisms.

Twenty participants will be selected among practicing lawyers and legal counselors working with human rights or women’s rights NGOs in the region.

The completed WHRTI application form and all supporting documents must be sent to by 25 August 2011.
