Chapter Summary

This chapter presents Scandinavian Networks of Human Rights Experts (SCANET) training course for expertise dated June 5-10, 2004. It explores the significance of categories, such as faculty and students, by investigating how they are reflected in the qualities invested in the speech acts of different participants. The chapter also explores SCANET activities from the perspective of reproducing the community of practice of human rights experts. It investigates whether they render the community transparent, thus allowing its legitimate peripheral participants to gain full membership, or whether they leave elements of its content opaque. In the expert discourse of human rights, human rights experts share knowledge practices that students need to learn in order to gain full membership of this community of practice. The chapter describes those knowledge practices, aiming to discover how SCANET activities socialize students in them.
