Since 2010, ILI-ACLE has held training programmes in the following areas:
Democratisation and the Human Rights-Based Approach to Development
Through a series of lectures, case studies, site visits, group discussions and action planning, this programme critically examines the practical application of human rights. Held in Uganda over two-weeks, the overall objective of this programme is to strengthen competence on how to integrate and mainstream human rights in development planning. Participants are supported to identify and practically make use of appropriate entry points for human rights strengthening to promote and protect freedom, democracy and secure development.
Promoting Government Integrity and Anti-Corruption
Held in Uganda over two weeks, this programme provides participants with a firm grasp of the structural sources of corruption, the elements of good governance, and an in-depth analysis of the interventions required to fight corruption and bad governance. Participants explore development tools used to measure corruption to determine the effectiveness of anti-corruption schemes towards the design of an effective anti-corruption programme and integrity system. Finally, participants undertake a comparative study of national, regional and international efforts to eradicate corruption.
Held in collaboration with the Danish Centre for Human Rights and Ideas2Action, the goal of this programme is to provide participants with tools to strengthen their capacity in transforming the conflicts they face in order to contribute most effectively to human rights, governance, development and peace-building in the communities in which they work. Held for two weeks in Uganda and a week in Denmark with several site visits to relevant institutions, the programme has provided participants with an insightful and practical global comparative on challenges, practices and trends in the field. All institutions facilitate throughout the three weeks.
Equitable and Sustainable Use and Valuation of Natural Resources
Many developing countries are endowed with vast natural resources that have the potential to contribute significantly to economic growth. Based on international experience and best practices, this course enables participants to work for management of natural resources that benefit their nation, the affected local communities and the local business so that the resource can be a blessing and not a curse. The three-week programme has been held in collaboration with the Danish firms, Grontmij A/S and IBIS, with all three institutions facilitating the two weeks in Denmark and final week in Uganda. Recent programmes have included trips to Hoima, the oil district of Uganda.
Public Sector Leadership
Strong leadership is essential to ensure an effective public sector. Improving the performance of the public sector is only possible through real commitment from the management and their ability to inspire colleagues and drive change. Public Sector Leadership is fundamental in developing the public sector. This programme, held over three weeks in both Denmark and Uganda, enhances the professional skills of the participants based on an enhanced understanding of public sector governance, leadership and management tools and approaches. The programme is held in collaboration with Rambøll Management.
