Professor Arancha García del Soto is CPGC's 2012-2013 Global Leader for Peace.
Most people working on International Affairs confront cases of Human Rights violations. Some International workers work directly to prevent those or to deal with these impacts, and others need to document, at least partially, those violations as they relate to their core mission (e.g. implement health programs for teenagers in a conflict area).
How can we understand the relations between different international humanitarian programs and Human Rights work? What are the similarities, differences and intersections? What abilities and methods are required for all International workers confronting Human Rights violations? What are some of the most recent success examples in International Law and Domestic regulations?
In this seminar we will present diverse examples of Humanitarian programs in several countries, intersecting with Human Rights violations. We will describe the professional roles of different team members, and the tools and protocols needed in order to compile successfully the victims´ realities (in context of warfare, environmental damage, and even in natural disasters). We will listen t the testimonies of survivors and Human Rights workers, and will present specific cases emphasizing the security needs and the risks involved in those.
