 This project is part of the wider Programme “Voice and Accountability” which aims at strengthening the voice of citizens and the accountability of authorities in Rwanda and is co-funded by the European Union.

Has the overall objective to promote human rights, in particular labour rights, in the country.

 Draws on the position of the Media, the Judiciary and the Parliament as key actors that can make a leading contribution in this respect.

 Consists of three main components which mirror its target groups and specific objectives:

(1) to enhance the knowledge of journalists and media professionals of ILS and their ability to use them in their reports;

(2) to strengthen the knowledge of judges and lawyers of ILS and of other human rights instruments dealing with labour issues and their capacity to use them to resolve labour disputes; and (3) to raise the awareness of Parliamentarians on ILS and the role they are called to play on them.
