20 activists and bloggers from seven countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia, and the Ukraine) visited the headquarters of the ISHR on Wednesday, December 7 through December 10th (International Day of Human Rights). National section leaders arrived with young representatives from their country to attend the workshops and the closing press conference. The process of developing Human Rights Online was a cooperative effort between the German section and our sections in each of the aforementioned countries over the past five months and this conference was the culmination of those efforts.
The workshops were a final opportunity to answer any questions in regards to using the site, and to hear feedback from the bloggers about the site. Bloggers also discussed the process of creating and posting interviews on topics related to human rights in their countries, both the challenges and successes.
