The human right to food in Bolivia report of an international fact-finding mission by Carole Samdup ( )
4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Almost a billion people around the world experience hunger every day. This is more than before the food price crisis of 2008 and significantly higher than when hunger-reduction targets were set during the World Food Summit in 1996. Those targets envisioned a reduction, by half, in the number of hungry people by 2015. Not only is the international community failing to achieve its modest goal, it is now confronting a setback that compels us to ask where we have gone wrong. Bolivia is a country that boasts a government dedicated to social advancement. It also enjoys increasing state revenues from oil and gas and enough productive land to feed its population. And yet, the United Nations reports that Bolivia still records the highest level of hunger in South America. Rights & Democracy hopes that this report will offer some useful reflections on the causes of hunger in Bolivia and about how a human rights perspective might offer some solutions

2 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En mars 2010, une rencontre internationale d'apprentissage parrainée par Droits et Démocratie, Oxfam America et la Fédération internationale des droits de l'homme (FIDH) a réuni 13 organisations de la société civile qui avaient entrepris des études d'impact sur les droits humains (EIDH) de projets d'investissement privé ou qui s'intéressaient à cette initiative. Pendant quatre jours, les participants et participantes ont partagé leurs expériences quant à l'utilisation du document Droits devant, un outil dynamique mis au point par l'organisation canadienne Droits et Démocratie. Conçu tout particulièrement pour les communautés et les organisations qui les soutiennent, l'outil permet à des équipes de recherche d'effectuer des EIDH de projets d'investissement privé portant entre autres sur les domaines des infrastructures, de l'agro-industrie, des barrages et de l'extraction. Le présent rapport constitue un résumé des principales leçons tirées de cette démarche et des recommandations des participants et participantes, sur la base d'expériences pilotes réalisées en Bolivie, en Colombie, en Équateur, au Pérou, aux Philippines et aux États-Unis

La place d'une femme perspectives sur l'évolution du cadre juridique en Afghanistan ( )
2 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bien avant le début de l'intervention internationale, l'Afghanistan avait signé diverses conventions internationales protégeant les droits humains. En 1948, l'Afghanistan a voté en faveur de la Déclaration universelle des droits de l'homme. Puis, en 1983, l'Afghanistan a ratifié le Pacte international relatif aux droits économiques, sociaux et culturels (PIDESC) et le Pacte international relatif aux droits civils et politiques (PIDCP). Enfin, en 1994, l'Afghanistan a ratifié la Convention relative aux droits de l'enfant (CDE). L'Afghanistan de l'après-talibans a été façonné par la ratification d'autres instruments internationaux protégeant les droits humains, en particulier les droits des femmes, ce qui a contribué à réaffirmer l'importance de poursuivre une démarche d'équité dans la société afghane. En 2003, l'Afghanistan a été le premier pays musulman à ratifier, sans réserve, la Convention sur l'élimination de toutes les formes de discrimination à l'égard des femmes (CEDEF). L'article 2 de la CEDEF énonce explicitement l'obligation qui incombe aux États signataires de réformer leur constitution ou d'élaborer une constitution afin d'instituer des principes d'égalité et de non-discrimination à l'échelle nationale
