Welcome to The AMEL Institute

The AMEL Project

The AMEL Institute empowers young activists in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) with practical knowledge and skills so that they can do their human rights and civil society activism more safely and effectively. The goal is to transfer know-how from experienced activists and experts to brave and creative young people in the MEA region who are taking action to address rights violations, inequalities, injustices, discrimination, conflicts or similar issues affecting their communities.

The AMEL Institute is a new program that innovates upon decades of experience in empowerment and online training projects for young people across the Middle East and Africa by AMEL's Leadership. To test this new program before full roll-out, a pilot program is being conducted between February and May 2019 for 100 Middle Eastern and African activists (aged 18-36). Participants will learn online from human rights and civil society practitioners and renowned experts - such as Prof. Larry Diamond of Stanford - through video lectures, online discussion sessions, assignments, peer-to-peer learning and final projects.

With time, the AMEL Institute aims to become the leading online academy for MEA civil society activists with full online schools in Human Rights, Holocaust Education & Genocide Prevention, Democracy & Civics, Peace & Conflict, and New Media in partnership with the world's top universities, experts, activists and institutions.
