Capacity Building

“Hope For Children” CRC  Policy Center is committed to assisting  judges, prosecutors, investigators, defense lawyers, the Ombudsman Institution, the National Preventive Mechanism and other actors within the criminal justice system  to become more effectively involved in mechanisms whereby they can assert their opinions and concerns. Though different  children’s rights situations ask for tailor-made action, a wide range of entities have endeavored to educate themselves through  Capacity building programmes provided by the Institution. These have taken place upon request by International, regional and local entities.

Continuity and transfer of knowledge and skills to professionals is considered fundamental by the Organization who has developed a programme based on the training-of-trainer technique with benefits of significant multiplier effects. Our initiatives focus on interactive training methods and problem based learning contributing and providing room for interactive dialogue and problem based learning modules added to the practical understanding of the theory behind human rights / Children’s Rights law and the mechanisms called into life in order to protect Children’s rights.
