The human being and human well-being should be the centre of development. The case study brings out the impact of our work and the changes that we have made in the life of a single person or community. Case studies, like all documentation, are to record, reflect and act. In addition, it is also to ‘connect to the heart’.

At the end of this course, participants will take back three quality case studies, and have an understanding of international human rights standards.
