The programme was a great experience. It was very practical and the cases from the field showed how things work on the ground... the format was really easy to follow and interactive.

It was a great opportunity and I learned a lot. There were really effective tools and I liked the emphasis that Human Rights Due Diligence is a process of continuous improvement.
