On 3 October 2016, the UN Standing Police Capacity invited me to deliver a training session on election and human rights. As a trainer on human rights and the rule of law, I have quite a series of training packages available to deliver with relatively short notice. In fact, election and human rights was one of the first topics that I made presentations in my early career at the UN-Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (UN-OHCHR).
I delivered the training, focusing on the rights that need to be focused on during the election-related duties of UN Police personnel and host State security personnel. Those rights include: freedom of opinion, freedom of expression, the right to assembly, the right to access to public life, and non-discrimination.
I have delivered another complete training package on accountability of UN Police personnel earlier this year for them.
