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 120 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

Public interest litigation and political activism in China by Yiyi Lu( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and French and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le litige d'intérêt public (LIP) consiste à recourir au système juridique d'un pays afin d'amener des changements qui affectent le public. Sur le plan international, le LIP a été décrit tour à tour comme une action visant à provoquer des changements sociaux au moyen de jugements rendus par les tribunaux, une poursuite ayant pour but d'aller au-delà des cas individuels et des clients immédiats, un ensemble d'approches fondées sur les tribunaux visant à entraîner des réformes sociales importantes, une démarche consistant à défendre une cause en intentant une poursuite judiciaire ou à aider à provoquer des changements systémiques en matière de politiques au sein de la société au nom d'individus membres de groupes sous-représentés ou désavantagés, etc. (Goldston 2006). Les juristes chinois ont aussi proposé différentes définitions du LIP. Jusqu'à maintenant, aucun consensus n'a été atteint, mais l'on s'entend généralement pour dire que le LIP représente le contraire du litige faisant intervenir l'intérêt privé. Ainsi, un LIP doit avoir des implications plus vastes, allant au-delà du cas individuel, et affecter plus de personnes que le seul demandeur

Civil society and security sector reform in Indonesia, 1998-2006 a summary of 'Taking stock of the effectiveness of civil society organization advocacy strategies in security sector reform in Indonesia 1998-2006' by Nancy Slamet( )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En janvier 2006, un groupe d'organisations de la société civile indonésienne (OSC) et de membres de réseaux concernés par la réforme du secteur de la sécurité (RSS) de l'Europe, du Canada et des États-Unis se sont réunis à La Haye, aux Pays-Bas, pour évaluer les progrès de la RSS en Indonésie. Entre autres conclusions, les participants à cette rencontre ont souligné la nécessité de procéder à une évaluation exhaustive des résultats des stratégies de plaidoyer développées par la société civile pour promouvoir la RSS, ainsi que des obstacles auxquels elles se heurtent et des perspectives qui s'offrent à elles. Ils ont estimé qu'une telle étude pourrait aider les OSC à préparer leurs stratégies de plaidoyer futures et à fournir à point nommé des informations utiles à la population en général, au gouvernement indonésien, aux artisans des politiques et autres acteurs concernés par la RSS en Indonésie et au sein de la communauté internationale. Ce document est un résumé du rapport de l'étude menée ultérieurement par le Institute for Defense Security and Peace Studies (Djakarta) avec le soutien de Droits et Démocratie (Montréal)
A woman's place perspectives on Afghanistan's evolving legal framework( )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Well before international intervention began, Afghanistan had signed international conventions that protected human rights. In 1948, Afghanistan voted in favour of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Then, in 1983, Afghanistan ratified the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Finally, in 1994, Afghanistan ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). Post-Taliban Afghanistan has been shaped by the ratification of other international instruments protecting human rights, specifically women's rights, reaffirming the importance of a further equitable development of Afghan society. In 2003, Afghanistan was the first Muslim country to ratify, without reservations, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). Article 2 of CEDAW explicitly refers to the obligations of signatory states to reform or develop a constitution that reflects national principles of equality and non-discrimination

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March 2010, Rights & Democracy, Oxfam America, and the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) sponsored a global learning event that brought together 13 civil society organizations engaged or interested in community-based human rights impact assessments (HRIAs) of private investments. For four days, participants exchanged their experiences using Getting It Right, a dynamic tool developed by Canada-based Rights & Democracy. Designed especially for communities and their support organizations, the tool enables teams to conduct HRIAs of private investment projects, such as infrastructure projects, agro-industry, dams, extractive industries, and other initiatives. This report summarizes key lessons learned and recommendations from participants, based on their pilot experiences in Bolivia, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, the Philippines, and the United States

2 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 41 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
