The 15th International Human Rights Colloquium invites members of non-governmental organizations, activists from different movements, and agents of social transformation for a collective reflection on our role in the current and defiant global context, which has severely threatened rights and freedoms. In addition to facilitating the sharing of how we have resisted setbacks throughout the world, the 15th Colloquium also seeks to serve as a space to rethink the strategies adopted by the human rights movement and expand our alliances to face the challenges imposed by this conservative wave.
The 15th Colloquium is organized by Forum Asia (Thailand), the Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria (South Africa), Dejusticia (Colombia), and Conectas Human Rights (Brazil). It will be held in Portuguese, Spanish, and English.
Applicants from Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe, particularly with experience in human rights, specifically in relation to the theme of the 15th Colloquium are especially encouraged to apply. Applications from activists and members of other social transformation groups and movements are also welcome.
Applicants can request full or partial financial support through the application form. The decision whether support can be granted or not will be taken after the Selection Committee analysis.
In order to enable the full participation of parents and caretakers during the Colloquium, especially of women who would otherwise be impeded from attending the event, childcare services will be provided upon request by the participant and subject to availability.
About the Colloquium
The Colloquium, whose origin forms part of the creation of Conectas Human Rights itself, has been held since 2001. It has gathered over 1,600 participants from 85 countries. It is one of the most expected human rights events of the world.
In 2015 the Colloquium began to be prepared and organized in partnership with other organizations from the Global South and held every two years, in a continuous effort to better embrace the diversity of perspectives of Global South countries.
Its main objective is to promote the integration and the exchange among human rights activists from the Global South through the socialization of knowledge and practices that are capable of advancing the human rights agenda. In 2017, the Colloquium will seek to increase the participation of activists from other movements and agents of social transformation, in an effort to diversify the alliances of the human rights movement and to rethink collective strategies.

Below is a proposed budget breakdown for each participant. You are requested to prepare at least US$244 to cover your expenses for the duration of the meeting, of which the US$150 will have to be paid for the board and lodging to the Secretariat.
Other hotels or accommodations are available, but you have to shoulder the extra expense.
There are several airlines going to Manila. You can check their websites for your preferred flight bookings. We advise you to please arrive on the 26th April so that everyone is already here at the start of the meeting.
