Human rights violations appear in diverse forms in modern European societies. Amongst the most common violations of human rights in Europe are restrictions in equal access to education, the labour market and health care as well as violations of the freedom of expression, equality before the law and daily life discriminations – violent or not – against minorities of any type. One of the minorities often affected by those human rights violations are sexual minorities suffering of all of the above mentioned restrictions in their lives imposed by both legal and social norms.
In this context, the training course will take a closer look at human rights violations, especially of sexual minorities, in order to strengthen the capacities of youth workers in responding with measures of inclusive youth work to daily forms of discrimination. For this purpose the project will bring together youth workers from several European countries including Eastern Europe and the Caucasus, to exchange practices and to engage into a mutual earning processes on human rights and human rights protection.
The course will include theoretical concepts on human rights protection as well as study visits to human rights defenders in Georgia and will additionally provide space and time to design needs-based, outcome-oriented and inclusive youth projects.
