International Advocacy

We monitor and document human rights conditions in countries around the world, and call attention to those conditions at the United Nations and regional human rights bodies through submitting reports, making oral and written statements, and directly participating in human rights body meetings and reviews of treaty compliance. We partner with human rights defenders to conduct fact-finding and reporting and to increase their capacity to improve laws and policies for better protection of human rights in their countries through advocacy at the local and national level, and—as needed—at the United Nations and other international bodies.
