The OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights
effective communication and promotion of human rights in the digital age
for human rights defenders (HRDs) from 57 OSCE participating states. The
objective of the training is to enable HRDs to independently use digital
communication, investigation and design tools to communicate and present
human rights messages more effectively, to develop stronger links with
citizens and to counter negative narratives.

Human Rights Communication 2.0 will take place in BUDAPEST FROM 5 TO 7
DECEMBER 2017 and will start with a public event featuring experts from
various fields, including digital communications, psychology, new media,
marketing, open-source and data-driven investigations techniques &
design, aiming to provide participants with new insights on how to
communicate about human rights. Day two and three of the event will be
devoted to practical workshops for HRDs, enabling them to acquire new
skills and knowledge while working and creating solutions for issues
HRDs bring to the workshops themselves. The working language of the
event will be English, translation into Russian will be provided. The
workshops will require a high level of active participation and the
content will be tailored to the interests of the participants.

*OSCE/ODIHR recognizes as a human right defender any person promoting
and striving for the realization of human rights regardless of
profession, age or other status. Human rights defenders carry out their
human rights activities individually or jointly with others, as part of
an informal group or a non-governmental organization (NGO), and act in a
voluntary capacity or professionally. The key characteristic that
defines human rights defenders is not who they are, but what they do and
the human rights principles they stand for. 

With kind regards,
