Landmine Survivors Network hosts training workshops on disability laws and human rights around the world. These workshops are designed to give participants a comprehensive understanding of existing international human rights and disability laws. Attendees are empowered with the information, strategic tools, and confidence needed to assume leadership roles with respect to the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and to work to protect the rights of people with disabilities in their respective countries.
Workshops focus on advocacy techniques, forming and maintaining partnerships with other organizations, and how to participate in national, regional, and global-level advocacy, including work on the U.N. Convention. Participants are also given the opportunity to share their previous lobbying experiences with each other, and explore different tactics on how to communicate information to key decision makers and the press.
