The European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) contributes to the development and consolidation of democracy and the rule of law as well as to the respect for all human rights and fundamental freedoms, within the framework of the EU’s policy on development cooperation with third countries. This seminar was organised in the interest of the EIDHR grant beneficiaries (e.g. Public Committee Against Torture in Israel, Yemeni Observatory of Human Rights, etc.). The Forum provided a platform for an interactive exchange of information between CSOs beneficiaries of EIDHR funding and the EIDHR management team on the subjects and issues related to Human rights and Human rights projects management. The two-day Forum hold on the 14th and 15th of June 2011 in Brussels was divided into plenary sessions with key note speakers and four workshops on specific themes. The Forum brought together 250 representatives from CSOs and International Organisations active in the fields of democracy and human rights from within and outside the EU/Europe.
