In response to the call for applications this year Centre for Human Rights Education received 285 applications, however according to the policy the Selection Committee of CHRE selected 36 candidates were selected to participate, however 6 candidates were not able to participate due to their personal reasons.

PCDHR is an intensive learning program designed for human rights defenders and educators working with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Community Based Organizations (CBOs), and the students of the Social Science Departments (Sociology, Political Science, Gender Studies, International Relations, Mass Communications, Law etc.), the officials of different state institutions, media and other civil society groups.
