Advocates Archive: Human Rights Tools for a Changing World (2015)
Human Rights Tools for a Changing World was
created in 2015 with the express purpose of providing advocates of all
backgrounds, experiences, and locations a full range of tools and
resources to promote human rights in a changing world. Providing
practical, step-by-step guidance for individuals and community groups
wanting to use human rights monitoring, documentation, and advocacy in
their work to change policy and improve human rights conditions.
The manual was designed to aid advocates undertaking a variety of activities-from the relatively simple to the more complex. With background information, key questions to consider, case examples, and practitioner's tips, this handy resource provides tools to combat human rights abuses and change social institutions, as well as structures to promote the full realization of human rights.
The Advocates is celebrating 40 years of defending human
rights. Throughout this year, we are sharing stories and projects from
our archives to shed light on the history of the organization, and the
issues we work on.
