It will be held in conjunction with the International Solidarity Mission (ISM) which is scheduled a week before the HR workshop. The ISM is a factfinding mission comprising of several key organisations that work on the HR issue.

  4. Human Rights Internship Programme – This year’s HRIP will focus on the theme MIGRATION to coincide with the overall programme theme of WSCF. This intern will learn about the migration issues from the sending and receiving point of view and aiding the host organisation in its work.
