Applications are open for the 19th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights Education – Online Training 2020. The Training is a follow-up to the 19th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights (ASEMHRS19) held in Tromsø, Norway, on the theme, “Human Rights Education & Training”.
Since 2017, the ASEMHRS Training has served as the capacity-building component on human rights to support the Seminar’s overall objective of promoting mutual understanding and co-operation on human rights issues among ASEM Partners. This year’s capacity-building programme on the same Seminar topic will be held online due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The topic of this year’s ASEMRS19 Training will be covering Human Rights-Compliant Policing. The Training aims to equip and instruct law enforcement officers with a non-coercive, efficient, and human rights-compliant toolbox for conducting interviews with victims, witnesses, and suspects of crime.
The capacity-building program will present international guidelines on Investigative Interviewing and other non-coercive techniques, intended to support law enforcement investigations by outlining standards and practices for efficient and torture-free investigations. The main objective of the training programme is to build capacity of law enforcement (primarily), and members of the judiciary in ASEM partner countries on the evidence-based and human rights-compliant Investigative Interviewing technique and its associated safeguards.
