The participants had an opportunity to enhance their knowledge on such topics as European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) case-law on rights to PWD, status of PWD in the national legislature, participation of PWD in investigation procedures, types of disabilities and discrimination behaviour analysis. The training course along with theoretical part was loaded with practical exercises.
