The Geneva Centre focusses its capacity building efforts on government officials, national human rights institutions, journalists and other civil society representatives.

We work with independent human rights experts to develop targeted capacity building programmes to enable these groups to optimally participate in existing human rights mechanisms, which can be challenging for non-experts and those outside of the United Nations system.

The ultimate goal is to empower these stakeholders from the Middle East and North Africa to be able to act upon United Nations human rights recommendations in an effective and sustainable way.
