Trainer Consultant on Safe Dialogue and Public Speaking


The Lebanese Center for Human Rights (CLDH) is a local non-profit, non-partisan Lebanese human rights organization based in Beirut. CLDH was created in 2006 by the Franco-Lebanese Movement SOLIDA (Support for Lebanese Detained Arbitrarily), which had been active since 1996 in the struggle against arbitrary detention, enforced disappearance, torture, and the impunity of those perpetrating gross human rights violations.

CLDH monitors the human rights situation in Lebanon, fights enforced disappearance, impunity, arbitrary detention and racism and rehabilitates the victims of torture. CLDH regularly organizes press conferences, workshops and advocacy meetings on human rights issues in Lebanon and collects, records and documents human rights abuses in reports and press releases.
CLDH team on the ground supports initiatives aimed at determining the fate of all missing persons in Lebanon.
CLDH regularly follows up on numerous cases of arbitrary detention and torture in Lebanon in coordination with Lebanese and international organizations, and with the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention WGAD and the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture.
CLDH currently has 4 offices: Dora, Baouchrieh, Bekaa, & Tripoli.


Project Profile – “Safeguarding Human Rights Amid Crisis in Lebanon”:


Amid the crisis, Lebanon has witnessed an increase in human rights violations specifically towards the most vulnerable groups and individuals. Through promoting a culture of human rights and increasing knowledge and skills on how to tackle these issues, CLDH is delivering a 24-month project to promote a human rights culture in Lebanon and enable victims of human rights violation to become actively engaged in policy reform and public awareness. This project is funded by the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF).

The expected impact will be achieved through three main outcomes:

1. Monitoring, documentation, and reporting of cases of Human Rights violations in the Lebanese crisis has increased to reach a wider external audience;

2. Support to victims of human rights violations has increased to enable them to become human rights advocates;

3. A culture of human rights amongst young political parties’ members, students and community leaders is increasingly developing.


As part of its ongoing monitoring of human rights violations, CLDH will resort to documenting all data and information on human rights violations to build a database that can help analyze data, have a better understanding of patterns, and develop response strategies.

On another level, survivors of violations will go through an empowerment program led by the case workers depending on the case, that will act as a support system to later act as agents of change. CLDH will on one hand engage key groups and individuals through universities, political parties, and other relevant platforms by delivering awareness sessions to increase their knowledge on human rights issues, and on another hand through several trainings to address these violations in technical manners bringing this issue closer to students of relevant topics and professionals who can bring positive changes to this context.

The direct target audience includes donors, embassies, journalists, monitoring bodies, national and international NGOs receiving human rights briefs from CLDH, survivors of Human Rights Violations, Senior Law students, activists, and members of political parties.

By contributing to the promotion of a human rights culture, relevant groups will become more engaged in addressing the violations, and the public will become more aware of its rights, which as a result will enhance the human rights context and the lives of the most vulnerable.

The project is implemented at a national level in Lebanon, with the services delivered in CLDH four centers located in BML, North and Bekaa.
