  1. Does HREA offer human rights courses and/or trainings?
    HREA organises workshops, trainings distance education courses on a regular basis. Upcoming courses and trainings are advertised on our website. Information about distance learning courses and the application process can be found in the Distance Learning Programme section. HREA also co-organises trainings and workshops in the framework of professional development programmes in various countries. These can be attended only by invitation from our partner organisations. See the Calendar section for comprehensive listings of workshops, and academic courses on human rights offered by other organisations.

  2. Can I become a member of HREA?
    HREA is a non-governmental organisation with non-profit status, yet we are not a membership organisation.

  3. How does HREA develop partnerships with other organisations?
    HREA works closely with a variety of organisations: non-governmental organisations (NGOs), inter-governmental bodies, associations of professionals, academic institutions and governments agencies. Typically, these partnerships are initiated as part of grant-supported activities conducted in a specific country or programme area (see the Programmes pages for a description of projects HREA is currently involved in).

  4. Is it possible to distribute urgent action alerts through the HREA network?
    HREA is not an advocacy organisation and thus does not organise or distribute urgent alerts. We advise you to contact organisations like Amnesty International, the Asian Human Rights Commission, Human Rights Watch or the World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT), who have extensive networks to disseminate urgent appeals.

  5. Does HREA offer scholarships or fellowships?
    Unfortunately, HREA does not offers scholarships or fellowships. However, the Global Human Rights Education listserv regularly announces new scholarships and other learning opportunities.

  6. Is it possible to have an internship at HREA?
    HREA regularly offers non-paying internships for students of international relations, political science and related disciplines. Announcements of upcoming internships are posted on our website.

  7. How can I donate to HREA?
    Contributions to HREA can be made in various ways. For more information visit the "How You Can Help" section of our site. Donations to HREA are tax-deductible in the Netherlands and the USA.

  8. Where can I find the text of the Universal Declaration and other international human rights documents?
    The full text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the International Bill of Human Rights, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Convention on the Elimination of All Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), the European Convention on Human Rights, and many other international and regional human rights instruments can be found in HREA's on-line Human Rights Education Library. The world's most comprehensive on-line collection of documents, reports to international human rights monitoring bodies, and many other important human rights instruments can be found at the University of Minnesota Human Rights Library.

  9. Are there job openings at HREA?
    Currently HREA does not have any staff positions available. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to answer any queries or resumes that are sent. If positions open up they will be advertised on HREA's homepage. The following web sites offer comprehensive listings of jobs in the human rights, international development and related non-profit fields: idealist.org, OneWorld and Relief Web.

  10. I think my human rights have been violated. Where can I get help?
    The international and regional mechanisms for human rights protection are based on the assumption that "national remedies have been exhausted". Often local agencies can be of more immediate help in determining whether or not your rights have been violated and what steps should be undertaken. We suggest you contact a human rights organisation in your community, your local human rights commission or social service agency for assistance.

  11. Are there volunteer opportunities at HREA?
    HREA's multilingual website is partly based on the hard work of volunteers. HREA is always in need of native speakers of Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish and Urdu to translate educational materials from English. If you are interested in volunteering your time as a translator, please contact HREA's volunteer coordinator at info@hrea.org.

  12. Does HREA offer grants?
    No, HREA is not a grant-giving organisation. For a listing of agencies that have awarded grants to human rights education initiatives, see Chapter 6 of HREA's Human Rights Education Resourcebook.
