Collaboratory is a short certificate course for human rights lawyers, investigators, and documentors to discuss and explore sustainable, innovative, and collaborative approaches to addressing human rights challenges.

Collaboratory will run from February to May 2021. Beginning the first week of February to the last week of April, the participants will be provided weekly training videos from notable resource persons on various human rights issues and practical knowledge to help them in their human rights work. Weekly live sessions with the resource persons will be conducted for ideas sharing. For the duration of Collaboratory, the participants are expected to analyze present human rights issues, develop innovative ideas, and contribute solutions. The program aims to translate the ideas born out of this collaborative avenue for CHR employees and CSO workers into actual projects that can benefit communities, organizations, and even systems.
