RIYADH, 22 February, 2021 (TON): Kingdom is working to protect and promote human rights around the world as it launched new human rights training programs, the Saudi Human Rights Commission (HRC) president said on Sunday.

As the HRC and Alwaleed Philanthropies launched a series of training programs and seminars as part of an MoU signed by both parties in the presence of Princess Lamia bint Majed Saud Al-Saud, secretary-general and member of the board of trustees at Alwaleed Philanthropies, Dr. Awwad bin Saleh Al-Awwad added that human rights are the responsibility of all sectors of the state, institutions, and individuals.

The HRC is ready to cooperate with all local, regional and international establishments working in the field of human rights, Al-Awwad said.

He further added that the commission is aiming to integrate human rights methodology into the sector, strengthen interaction with human rights mechanisms and build capabilities for specialist workers.

The training programs will be held over two days and will tackle international and local laws related to human rights, the obligation of the state toward human rights, concepts and terminology, and the protection of rights at the national level and also will cover the work of UN institutions, treaties and protocols, and how they interact with the Kingdom.

It is likely to be seen that the human rights training programs will boost the capabilities of workers in the field of human rights and charity work.
