New Guide for Human Rights Defenders on Domestic Implementation of UN Human Rights Recommendations
Tuesday, 11 June 2013 13:31

 

(Geneva – 11 June 2013)  The International Service for Human Rights, together with the Human Rights Law Centre, has produced a new Guide for Human Rights Defenders on Domestic Implementation of UN Human Rights Recommendations.

 

The Guide brings together the expertise of ISHR, a leading international NGO focused on supporting human rights defenders and strengthening human rights systems, and that of the HRLC, a leading domestic human rights NGO with experience in advocating successfully for national implementation of UN human rights recommendations.

 

The Guide considers strategies and tactics that NGOs can use to contribute to the implementation of UN recommendations at the national level. Effective follow-up by civil society is vital to ensuring that UN recommendations lead to an improvement of the human rights situation on the ground.

 

The Guide is intended for a diverse audience, working in different countries and sectors, and with different areas of focus and expertise. The Guide outlines a range of strategies with a view to NGOs identifying those which are most appropriate to their domestic political, legal, economic, and social contexts and their organisation’s goals, resources, and working methods.
