Dr. Khouloud AlKhatib on the panel of “The Fusion of Human Rights and Policing”,
For its 60 Year Anniversary Celebration, Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF) devoted a whole day with three major events to showcase its ideas and to reflect, engage and celebrate in the spirit in which FNF is operating in Lebanon. The chosen term “The Three 60 Day” symbolizes not only 3 events and 60 Years, it also stands for the holistic, progressive, and digital approach we adhere to in our activities.
On November 8, 2018, the Lebanese Organization for Unity and Defending Equal Rights (LOUDER), the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF), and the Lebanese Internal Security Forces (ISF), and Geneva Institute for Human Rights (GIHR) have been working together for more than a year on developing a Human Rights training curriculum for the security forces and police in Lebanon. The purpose of this guide is to provide a detailed explanation of the articles mentioned in the Code of Conduct of the ISF and then translating them into practical cases. This guide reflects the compatibility of the Code of Conduct with the international human rights standards and the basic conventions that Lebanon has ratified and is committed to, in addition, to the Lebanese Constitution and the internal laws of the police forces.
