Capacity building for Uganda Martyrs University’s programme on local governance and human rights
The project provides support to Uganda Martyrs University’s (UMU) initiatives to develop a suite of education programmes in the fields of governance and human rights, that aim to provide local government officials with much needed opportunities for training and, in a general sense, upgrading their professional standards, skills and knowledge. The support comes from a consortium of the University of Groningen, the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies and the Interchurch organisation for development co-operation.
Through the project team of experts, support and guidance will be provided for the development of the education programmes (course development methods), specific issues of adult education, professional skills development and the societal, practical relevance of the course material. It is proposed that UMU’s project team will be supported by visiting experts (educationalists and thematic experts), and that the academic staff will be working in close cooperation with local resource persons and Ugandans who can provide input (data, case study materials) from practices in the districts.
The project includes substantial support for human resources development in the form of at least two MA/MSc programmes, one PhD study and a one-month training in curriculum/course development for eight UMU staff in The Netherlands. The project will provide tangible inputs for setting up a Resources and Research Centre, one of the key components for the envisaged Centre for Good Governance at UMU.
