Human Rights Education for the Police

Grantee: Kazakh International Bureau for Human Rights and Rule of Law

Aiming to improve human rights protection of citizens in Kazakhstan, the project developed a human rights education course for introduction into the curricula of Kazakh institutions training future police officers. The project involved training staff involved in educating police recruits. Outputs aimed to ensure that graduates from this human rights training programme exercise their functions taking into account international human rights standards. However, the project’s ultimate impact – the mandatory introduction of human rights training into the police academies’ curriculum – remained unachieved.
