IMPRI & the Fellows Allied Contribution to the Theme

Embracing the UN’s theme of “UNITE! Activism to End Gender-Based Violence,” team IMPRI with its LPPYF fellows of Cohort 2.0 will bring a special nuanced edition of IMPRI Publication titled LPPYF: An Anthology of Essays on Promoting Human Rights and Ending Gender-Based Violence. This will be an ISBN publication with our Fellows as contributing authors to individual chapters. Guided by seasoned experts, academics, and activists in law, public policy, and human rights, the program offers a comprehensive learning journey combining theoretical foundations, interactive discussions, and practical case studies that will help the fellows develop their chapters for the anthology.

The initial phase of the fellowship will establish a strong foundation by imparting comprehensive knowledge of gender-based violence, human rights principles, international legal frameworks, and the pivotal role of youth in advocating for ending violence and upholding human rights. As the fellowship unfolds, participants will engage in creative activities such as poetry, painting, slogan writing, blog and research essay composition, song creation, filmmaking, photo essays and presentations.
