On 18 March 2024, the Natolin Academy of Migration Nest organized a Human Rights Workshop and Testing Session for Starlight Stadium, an online educational game for human rights defenders. The game was created as a gamification of the Human Rights Monitoring curriculum developed by the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR).

The Human Rights Defenders team at ODIHR has developed a unique tool, which focuses on the advocacy stage of the human rights monitoring cycle and the related safety, security, and well-being considerations. The mission of this set is to provide a thorough understanding of the methodology, roles, and responsibilities required for human rights monitors to undertake effective human rights monitoring missions.

Students had the opportunity to learn about human rights defenders, ODIHR’s human rights defenders’ work, and ODIHR’s human rights monitoring methodology - in an innovative way. Also, the students were able to ask questions and engage in open discussion about the principles that underlie human rights defenders’ work.

Students learned about the elements of the ODIHR’s human rights monitoring methodology, including information gathering, verification, analysis, report writing, advocacy - and the principles that underlie the methodology - do no harm, credibility, safety & security, gender mainstreaming, and so on - concepts that have wide applications to those working in and around human rights.
