The Bulgarian Gender Research Foundation (BGRF), the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) and the Network of East-West Women (NEWW) and are pleased to announce a call for applications for the second Women’s Human Rights Training Institute (WHRTI), 2007-2009.

The goal of the Institute is to strengthen the ability of lawyers from Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltic states and the Caucasus to litigate cases concerning women’s human rights, particularly, violence against women, sexual and reproductive health and rights and employment discrimination, at the national, regional and international levels through the development of feminist legal analysis and litigation skills, cross-border cooperation, and networking.

The WHRTI is a two-year, four-part series of workshops bringing together the same group of fifteen participants over the course of the training. Through both technical workshop sessions on the European Court of Human Rights, European Court of Justice, and United Nations treaty body mechanisms, as well as substantive training sessions on violence against women, sexual and reproductive health and rights, and employment discrimination, the Institute will build the needed analysis, skills and networks among lawyers required to successfully seek justice for women.

Successful applicants are required to commit to participate in the entire two-year, four-workshop Institute series. The organizers encourage lawyers from Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltic States and the Caucasus, who are willing to make this two-year commitment. Selected participants will be required to actively participate in all four sessions, including pre-session preparation and inter-session activities.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: June 30, 2007
