In 2017, the co-organisers introduced a capacity-building component on human rights to support the Seminar’s overall objective of promoting mutual understanding and cooperation on human rights issues in ASEM. Capacity-building will be delivered via an annual human rights training, related to the Seminar theme. This 2019, a training under the theme of “Human Rights and the Prevention of Violent Extremism” is planned to be delivered in the 3rd quarter.
Like the Seminar series, the training is co-organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), the Raoul Wallenberg Institute, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development of France, the Department of the Foreign Affairs of the Philippines, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China.
ASEF is seeking a training organisation to design and deliver a training on the general topic of human rights and prevention of violent extremism with a view to:
•Build capacity and improve competency of ASEM Partners (governments, inter-governmental organisations and NGOs) to develop measures to prevent violent extremism with respect for human rights
•Provide theoretical and practical learning on a human rights-based approach to taking good preventive initiatives
•Improve understanding of human rights in the context of ASEM/Asia-Europe relations
ASEF, on behalf of its partners, is pleased to share with you the Call for Proposals for the Training Design & Delivery on the Topic of Human Rights & Prevention of Extremism.
