UN Advocacy Training Workshop
November 7 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
This Training engages participants with issues facing some of the most marginalised communities in the world including Eelam Tamils, and encourages them to think about equality Justice, and diversity in the global governance system. It offers an opportunity for the development of self-confidence, and public speaking and debating skills.
Tamils who are most acutely affected by conflict, human rights abuses, war Crimes, enforced disappearances and environmental injustices are often not represented by state interests. In many cases they seek to represent themselves on the international stage, as stateless nations (e.g., Tamils) as indigenous communities (e.g., Tamil Eelam) as minorities (e.g., Tamil Eelam) or as de facto states (e.g., Tamil Eelam). ABC Tamil Oli an NGO with ECOSOC Status, established this training sessions to encourage youths and others to become trained advocates and Independent Diplomats to represent and seek justice for Eelam Tamils in the global governance system as well as United Nations Human Rights Council.
