This programme has been running since 2000. The Programme is the result of collaboration between the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva (Switzerland) and the Pedro Arrupe Human Rights Institute at the University of Deusto.
The programme is funded by the Basque Government through the Basque Agency for Development Cooperation. In the twenty two years of the programme, more than 120 people from different nations and indigenous communities in the Latin American region have been trained in this programme, and full scholarships are offered to each of the people selected for the programme each year.
This postgraduate programme is specifically designed for people belonging to indigenous peoples in Latin America, and aims to provide expertise in human rights in general and indigenous peoples' rights in particular so that they can accompany and assist their communities and organisations in the task of defending, promoting and protecting human rights. The programme, through all its components, seeks to strengthen the political advocacy activities in which indigenous leaders participate, as well as to facilitate the insertion of the participants in different work networks for the defence of the specific human rights of indigenous peoples.
