Output/Results Following the publication of the Manual on human rights for civil servants a series of training seminars on human rights for civil servants from local public authorities in 5 cities from different regions of the country is being organised. The first seminars have been held in the cities of Balti and Edinet in the northern part of the country. The trainers, co-authors of the Manual have made a general presentation of it, as well as presented several chapters of the manual, regarded by them as most important for representatives of the local public authorities. The participants have also discussed different aspects of their activity, pointing out the most problematic ones, such as shortages in the social assistance field, rights of people with disabilities, petitioning system and others. 
Conclusions/Follow Up The participants have broadened their knowledge of the national and international legal instruments for the protection of human rights, they also highly appreciated the quality of the Manual which will serve as a very useful tool in their daily work. Other training seminars shall be organised in the cities of Cahul, Comrat and Chisinau later in the month of November and first half of December. The bulk of the copies of the Manual shall be disseminated among civil servants and other beneficiaries both during further trainings and other activities of the Moldovan Ombudsman Institution.
