Four months of intensive training for Papuan human rights defenders has allocated comprehensive grants through PBI Indonesia, for 10 grassroots organizations from West Kalimantan, East Nusa Tengara, Papua, West Papua and Central Sulawesi. This set of grants allows sending human rights defenders to Jakarta, in order to participate in a four-month intensive training on how to improve safety and quality standards in human rights field research. As recently reported, in the first six months of training a wide variety of topics have already been covered, including sessions on digital security, dealing with aggression, nonviolent communication and negotiation, basic human rights theory and law, social analysis, interviewing techniques, writing for human rights reporting, and risk analysis and mitigation. The trainees will also conduct a short field visit with a Javanese farmers' union to sharpen some of these skills before beginning to plan their own research projects,
