EUPOL COPPS Mission delivers 200 copies of Human Rights Training Curriculum for law enforcement officials

EUPOL COPPS Mission delivered this week 200 copies of the Human Rights Training Curriculum for Law Enforcement Officials to the Ministry of Interior’s Human Rights and Democracy Unit. The drafting of the manual was coordinated by the Ministry of Interior and carried out in cooperation with Birzeit University.

Chapters include the following topics: freedom of expression; freedom of assembly; prohibition of torture; social, economic and political rights of detainees; and responsibility for executing the unlawful orders of superiors. The curriculum has been designed in such a way as to allow for additional chapters to be added over time.

The delivered copies have been tailored for the needs of trainers, while the edition for trainees will be printed next month. The Mission will follow up on this activity with, amongst others, a Training of Trainers (ToT) in the next mandate, scheduled for the beginning of July.
