International Human Rights Mechanisms: Defenders Handbook

    This booklet is an overview of various international mechanisms for protecting human rights. Many of these processes can be used by people who don’t have any legal training. Individuals and communities seeking resolutions or justice for human rights issues can use this resource to understand the options available and how to apply them.

    The International Human Rights Mechanisms Defenders Handbook is a work of many heads, hands and hearts. We would like to thank everyone at Not1More, Instituto Zé Claudio e Maria and our partner organisations. Particular thanks to Emma Lazell, Baptiste Beurrier and Sophie McEwen, who have volunteered their time and energy to make this happen and without whom this booklet would not exist.
