FNF Human Rights Academy


The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF) aims to promote freedom in more than sixty countries worldwide. The Foundation organizes various dialogue programs to support human rights, the rule of law and democracy. FNF has been active in Turkey for more than 25 years. In this time, we have offered numerous human rights courses in various formats. This year, we have been initiated a new format, the FNF Human Rights Academy, which participants can receive in-depth knowledge about the protection of human rights both internationally and in Turkey.

The first part of the academy, titled the Basic Course on International Protection of Human Rights, was taken place every Saturday from 29 February until 2 May. After the third week’s course, the program was online because of the measures taken against the pandemic. The second program will also continue online with the basic course on 27 May – 27 June. Each lecture will consist of two parts: In the first part, the highly qualified instructor will provide in-depth inputs about the subject of the week. In the second part, the participants are tasked to engage actively in discussions and hands-on exercises. This unique learning opportunity aims at providing expert knowledge and experiences of academics, representatives of non-governmental organizations and human rights activists in the field of human rights.

The program will be held in Turkish. For more information and how to apply, please follow the link.
