InZone enables vocational and higher education through virtual learning, provided in refugee camps. It uses on-line and blended learning: The course entails an initial on-site component, followed by online learning activities. In the first phase, 22 participants followed a week of on-site training and completed online activities related to the legal context of their daily work; this involves 1) providing interpretation for Rule of Law officers, especially those engaged in legal gender issues, and helping them to coordinate policy and programming to better empower women as active participants in civil society and government; and 2) providing interpretation for Human Rights officers engaged in monitoring the situation of civilians, to coordinate efforts to ensure their protection, to promote accountability, and to assist in the full implementation of the fundamental freedoms and human rights provisions and international treaties.
