Journalists with more than five years of experience covering human rights in Latin America and the Caribbean can apply for this online training in Spanish.

The Inter-American Court of Human Rights and the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation are launching a new edition of their investigative journalism fellowship, which aims to encourage in-depth knowledge of the functioning of the Inter-American Human Rights System, the agenda for strengthening human rights protection work and the role of the Inter-American Court.

Participants will conduct an investigation on topics related to the climate emergency and human rights, the right to care and its relationship with other rights, freedom of thought and expression, judicial independence, or artificial intelligence in the administration of justice.

The program will run from Aug. 12 to Oct. 12. Each fellow will receive US$1,000.

The deadline is July 17.
