Diplomacy Training Program (DTP)

Diplomacy Training Program (DTP)

Enabling others to make a difference is at the heart of the Diplomacy Training Program’s (DTP’s) work. Every day the courageous individuals DTP has trained in Asia and the Pacific work to stop human trafficking, “disappearances” and torture, inhumane working conditions, land and resource grabbing and to promote values of human dignity. Empowering frontline defenders of human rights, peace and the environment, through building their knowledge, skills and networks is our primary goal.

DTP recognizes the power of individuals to make lasting and sustainable change. It recognizes the value of investing in these individuals.

The DTP was founded in Australia in 1989 by Nobel Peace Laureate, Professor José Ramos-Horta and Emeritus Professor Garth Nettheim. It is an independent NGO affiliated with the Faculty of Law, UNSW Sydney. As the longest-established organisation in the region providing human rights advocacy training, it has over 2800 alumni worldwide.

Our alumni have gone on and led changes to unjust laws, so that domestic workers in Singapore are entitled to one day off per week. They have won the release of political prisoners in Indonesia and stopped the execution of a Sri Lankan maid in Saudi Arabia. They are challenging the killings in the Philippines, the destruction of the rainforest in Indonesia, the killing of “witches” in Papua New Guinea, the exploitation of garment workers in Bangladesh and the bulldozing of sites significant to Indigenous Peoples in Australia.

Your donations will go towards the provision of vital training for those on the frontline fighting human rights abuses. Our target is to train over 200 committed and inspired individuals each year – knowing that their work can help many thousands more.
