Kuwaiti Ambassador H.E Jamal Al-Ghoneim observed that the Geneva Centre’s training programs “reflect the ambitions of students from the Gulf to highlight the universality of human rights, and to show that human rights are fully consistent with Islamic cultures and traditions”.
Al Ittihad news agency reports on the success of the Geneva Centre’s human rights training program for students from the United Arab Emirates University. They emphasise the need for constructive intercultural dialogue in order to make human rights a reality on the ground in the Middle East and North Africa Region.
Geneva Centre graduate Basma Rashid Al Hebsi told Al Roeya news that “The Geneva Centre’s training program provided an important opportunity for students to work on issues related to women’s rights and labour…and to move from theory to practice in these areas”. Our Executive Director Imad Zuhairi added that education is the best way to prevent extremism, encourage tolerance, and respect differences to promote and protect human rights.
