Human Rights at International Borders: A Trainer’s Guide
International borders can be dangerous places for migrants, particularly for migrants in vulnerable situations. Border governance and the work of border officials are about ensuring the well-being of migrants and communities by upholding human rights and protecting the rule of law; they are often first responders in providing assistance and protection to people in vulnerable situations.
Developed collaboratively by OHCHR and the Office of Counter-Terrorism, this trainer’s guide draws on, and complements, the OHCHR Recommended Principles and Guidelines on Human Rights at International Borders. Accompanied by slide presentations and course materials this capacity-building tool seeks to support States and particularly border officials in adopting a human rights-based and gender-responsive approach to border governance.
