Workshop on monitoring and reporting concludes in Chisinau

From 5 to 7 March 2018, 14 participants from 11 European National Human Rights Institutions attended a workshop on monitoring and reporting in Chișinău, Moldova.

The workshop is a part of the global project NHRI.EU Capacity Project, funded by the European Union. The global project is facilitated by the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR), and the courses in the European region is being coordinated by ENNHRI.

Dr. Olga Beinarovica, from the European Union’s delegation to Moldova, and Mr. Michael Cotorobai, the Peoples Advocate of Moldova, welcomed the participants in the opening of the workshop, which aimed to strengthen the NHRI´s capacity to independently monitor and report on the human rights situations in their countries and to follow up on the implementation of recommendations and findings.

The participants received training on how to apply human rights methodologies when undertaking monitoring and reporting within different thematic areas. They also worked on specific cases they had selected from their national context, while receiving individual guidance from the trainers – Mandana Zarrehparvar and Matias Rølje Bruun from the DIHR.

When presented with the question of what they had learned at the workshop, one of the participants stated that “I learned how to create a timeline, a SWOT analysis, how to collect and use the best resources of my Institution and how to engage with our stakeholders or NGOs”“I will pass the information to my colleagues and try to mainstream the methods learnt to be applied in our further monitoring and reporting activities”, another participant expressed.
