Files & Downloads

Are you dealing with issues regarding Human Rights and Civil Society? Then you might like what you can find here.

The documents provided below are supposed to help you work more effectively and efficiently. How? By avoiding that you have to face the same challenges that have already been overcome by other members of the KNOW-HOW3000 network.

Why develop strategies for Human Rights and Civil Society from scratch, when you could use a partner’s policy as a guideline? Browse through the Strategies, Policies and Position Papers folder.

Do you have to come up with a solution for a problem you haven’t dealt with before? Maybe our partners have. Check out the Experiences, Systematization and Evaluation folder and make your project benefit from the lessons our community members have already learned.

If you are planning a new project, training and/or workshop, you should definitely take a look at the folders Manuals & Handbooks as well as Publications & Studies. Chances are a community member has already shared a useful document, guide or template on your topic.

Do you have anything to add to our folders?

KNOW-HOW3000 exists for and thanks to you. Without the experiences and knowledge you share with us, our Knowledge Management Platform would not be possible. That’s the reason why we strongly encourage you, to contribute your valuable content in order to make it accessible to the KNOW-HOW3000 network. If you have a piece of relevant information that you think our Knowledge Management Community would benefit from, please let us know! We’d love to hear about it!
