School of Transnational Justice

Within the context of human rights violations prevailing in Mexico, ProDESC identified that it was necessary to have a space devoted to professional education in order to train subsequent generations of human rights defenders.

 

ProDESC with support from the Bertha O. de Osete Foundation promoted the creation of the School of Transnational Justice aimed at educating new generations in ESCRs defense with a particular emphasis on the human rights doctrine, the transnational justice framework, and the construction of collective and community subjects with political agency.
