Human rights monitoring means bringing human rights violations to light. Monitoring provides objective, well-supported information about the human rights practices of governments, businesses, private groups and organizations in order to provide a basis for advocacy and future protection of human rights.
Building on our practice of using traditional human rights monitoring methods to address cutting-edge human rights issues, The Advocates undertakes human rights monitoring projects of significance to local and international communities.
With the help of hundreds of volunteers, The Advocates has monitored human rights conditions and produced more than 75 reports documenting human rights practices in more than 25 countries.
The Advocates leads volunteers on international fact-finding trips to document human rights violations.
The Advocates adapts international human rights monitoring methods to improve human rights protections for people in the United States and our local communities.
