Fellowship Programme for People of African Descent
2017 Fellows with the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
A call for applications for the 2018 Fellowship Programme for People of African Descent will be posted in March.
In the framework of the Programme of Activities for the Implementation of the International Decade for People of African Descent, the Fellowship Programme for People of African Descent provides the participants with a learning opportunity to deepen their understanding of the United Nations human rights system, instruments and mechanisms, with a focus on issues of particular relevance to people of African descent. The Fellowship Programme will allow the participants to better contribute to the protection and promotion of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of people of African descent in their respective countries.
