The six Timorese human rights defenders, part of the "Studies & Training Programme (Group 1)", have successfully completed the first semester of the Global Campus Regional Master Programme in Human Rights and Democratization in Asia-Pacific, at Mahidol University in Bangkok.
During this period they attended classes, field trips, international conferences and much more. From February they are spending their second semester at the partner university, four of them at the University of Gadja Mada, in Indonesia and two at the Ateneo de Manila, in the Philipines.
