The CIPDH-UNESCO organizes workshops for foreign students to promote knowledge and awareness of human rights. The meetings take place at historic sites of memory in buenos aires.

Workshops are aimed at foreign students who are studying or participating in exchange programs in the Argentine capital. From a human rights-based approach, workshops are an enriching complement to their education and experience in Argentina.

Workshops take place at historic sites of the City of Buenos Aires and include tours and activities that help connect historical processes and memory with current issues related to human rights. Each activity includes a visit to a historic site and a spirited workshop intended to promote practice and discussion based on the concepts and topics addressed throughout the visit. The contents are intended as an introduction to the topics, so no prior knowledge is required.

In 2018, topics like sovereignty and identity, archives and memory, migrants and refugees and genocides were addressed.

These in-person workshops are held on a single day session lasting three to four hours. Workshops are held on an on-demand basis for groups of 10 to 25 participants.  Additionally, the CIPDH-UNESCO facilitates a few open workshops which are published on this website and require online registration. Participation is always free of charge.
