Practical training is an underutilized resource of great potential for the international human rights community. This handbook intends to help international nongovernmental organizations (INGOs) develop their capacity to provide in-house training to human rights activists from other countries and, in so doing, build stronger partnerships with activists and human rights organizations throughout the world. Specifically, the handbook is structured to assist INGOs to design and implement effective practical training projects in the form of professional attachments (commonly thought of as internships) for human rights activists. "Effective" practical training, from the perspective of this handbook, is that which embraces a philosophy of experiential education, is responsive to the needs of the activist participants, and enhances their ongoing work in their home countries.
