The CIM, through the MESECVI and in collaboration with the Supreme Courts of Justice of Mexico and Argentina; the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR); and the Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO), on September 8, 2014, launched the Graduate Diploma on “Justice, Gender, and Violence.”
Start date: September 8, 2014 – The application period for the first edition of the Diploma Course is now closed.
Designed for justice officials in Latin America, including law enforcement personnel, public defenders, forensic medicine personnel; human rights defenders, and other professionals interested in pursuing training on gender justice, the Graduate Diploma, will provide the basic knowledge and analytical and practical tools needed for effective protection of women’s human rights, based on the constitutional, regional, and international obligations that States have the responsibility to fulfill.
This is an excellent opportunity to identify and gain knowledge of the instruments, mechanisms, and argumentation strategies for guaranteeing women access to justice free from gender-based stereotypes and in conditions of equality.
