Montevideo, Uruguay. On March 21, 2017, the graduates of the 2016 Inter-University Program on Human Rights of the IIHR and the Association of Universities Entrusted to the Society of Jesus in Latin America (AUSJAL) received the diplomas that marked the end of the course, in one of three specialized areas: Citizen Participation, Education and Access to Justice. Speaking at the ceremony, which took place in the Sala Bauzá of the Catholic University of Uruguay, were the Dean of the Law School, Alvaro Pacheco; the IIHR Representative for South America, Soledad García Muñoz, and the UN Resident Coordinator, Denise Cook. The General Coordinator of the Program, Mariella Saettone, closed the event.
The diplomas are awarded by the twelve universities of the network in a joint effort that seeks to contribute to improving the situation of human rights in the region through specialized training and by providing the graduates with practical and theoretical tools to be applied in their distinct fields. There are now some 200 graduates of the Program.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 course, which will also include the field of Human Security.
