The Leitner Center for International Law and Justice in collaboration with CREAW are organising a free, two-day workshop that will take place at Nairobi’s Sankara Hotel from Nov. 17 – 18th.

The goal of this interactive workshop is to train university students and early career activists on gender justice through the framework of gender studies and human rights.

The workshop will also include a training of the trainers, for participating students and activists who may want to replicate some of the training modules back in their universities or NGOs.

The target audience are university students and early career activists and is focused on youth activism. It would not be suitable for advanced professionals with a strong background in gender justice since it is an introductory workshop.
