The Department for Educational and Methodological Matters of the Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Kazakhstan – who were a partner of the grantee – submitted an application for approval of the new, mandatory, human rights training for police academies to the Ministry of Education upon completion of the Human Rights Training manual drafting process. At the time of the evaluation visit still no launch date had been secured and almost 2,600 training manual copies were on the shelf. With plans for future training, review and production of new training manuals yet to be confirmed – to keep pace with national legislative developments – there is a serious risk that knowledge will be lost and that existing course material becomes out of date.
