The human right to food in Bolivia report of an international fact-finding mission by Carole Samdup ( )
3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and French and held by 104 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

The fight for human rights in Africa perspectives on the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights by Michael Wodzicki ( )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Préface en anglais indique : "2008 is the 60 th anniversary of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights. In the decades that followed the adoption of the Declaration, human rights norms and institutions have expanded and deepened around the world. Included amongst these is the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights (the African Commission), which in 2007 celebrated its 20 th anniversary. The African Commission is Africa's key regional institution charged with the promotion and protection of human rights. Over time, as the African Commission has slowly but surely expanded its reach in Africa, and consequently the space to fight for human rights, human rights actors on and outside the continent have taken notice; Rights & Democracy is one such actor. Rights & Democracy is a pioneer Canadian institution that supports human rights and democratic development around the world, and celebrates its 20 th anniversary in 2008. For the last 15 years, the African Commission and Rights & Democracy have cooperated at opportune moments. In 2005, the African Commission and Rights & Democracy entered into a partnership which for the first time saw Canadian lawyers posted to the African Commission's Secretariat in Banjul, The Gambia, for 2 years. Working with and learning from their colleagues at the Secretariat, these Canadians were able to make important contributions to the fulfilment of the Commission's mandate. Drawing on their experiences, these Canadians describe in the chapters of this volume the African Commission's mandate and opportunities for human rights promotion and protection in Africa. The growing commitment of African states to Africa's human rights system is in part evidenced by the fact that some of the opportunities des cribed and analyzed in this volume's chapters are already becoming reality. Indeed, changes in the African human rights system are occurring faster than we can write about them. The Fight for Human Rights in Africa: Perspectives on the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights As this goes to press, it is expected that at the Eleventh Assembly of the African Union from 30 June to 1 July 2008 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, Africa's Heads of State will adopt a single legal instrument merging the Court of Justice of the African Union and the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights. This historic decision reflects the tireless efforts of African Union officials, African Union member states, and civil society activists from across the continent to continue reinforcing Africa's human rights mechanisms. The next step is for all African Union member states to ratify and sign the protocol recognizing the jurisdiction of the new African Court of Justice and Human Rights - which we call on them to do as soon as possible and without reservation. We hope that stories in this publication contribute to the positive mo mentum currently driving the African human rights system, and serve to educate, inform, and motivate human rights practitioners in Africa and around the world."

2 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 35 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 34 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
