Evaluation Report - International Human Rights Mechanisms and how to use them
Uploaded Date: 21/04/2013

The fundamental aspect of human rights work is therefore is to inform people and acquire adequate knowledge of what their rights and responsibilities are, how rights are protected, and what can be done when rights are violated.
