Welcome to the EHRP Human Rights Trainers Network. This is a web-based network for those who are interested and/or engaged in human rights training, established as a follow up project of the action oriented project titled “Enhancing Human Rights Protections in the Security Sector in the Asia Pacific Region Project (EHRP)” led by the University of Sydney in partnership with the Centre for the Study of Human Rights of the University of Colombo (Sri Lanka) and the Kathmandu School of Law (Nepal).
