The project is implemented in close cooperation with the EU Delegation in Dili and especially the Ambassador/Head of Mission, the DEVCO and the Communication Offices.
Beside providing essential technical support for the correct implementation of the action, the EUDEL role is crucial in facilitating institutional dialogue with the main national and international institutions, successfully organising outreach events and campaigns, and defining visibility and sustainability strategies.
Since the UNTL is the final beneficiary institution, all main aspects of the project are coordinated with the UNTL Rector and his Cabinet, as well as with the Deans of the Faculties involved, especially the Faculty of Social Sciences which houses the Human Rights Centre.
All academic aspects of capacity-building are conceptualized and developed thanks to the expert support of the Institute of Human Rights and Peace (IHRP) of Mahidol University in Bangkok, home to the Global Campus Asia-Pacific Programme. IHRP lecturers are involved in teaching and tutoring students and trainees, as well as supporting internationalization of the new HRC and facilitating its introduction to the main regional human rights education networks.
The Provedoria, as the main national human rights institution, is a crucial local actor. Their expertise makes a vital contribution to incorporating the Timorese experience in struggles for human rights and democratization into the training programmes and for curriculum development.
The Centro Nacional Chega, as the national centre for dealing with the past, is a crucial local actor. Their expertise makes a vital contribution to incorporating the Timorese experience in struggles for human rights and democratization into the training programmes and for curriculum development.
The UN system in Timor-Leste, including the Resident Coordinator Office and the Agencies, has strongly supported the project from its very inception. Their help is critical to further improve the implementation process, facilitate linkages with domestic and foreign stakeholders and support the organization of local events and future development of the Human Rights Centre.
