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

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

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)
Portrait of the indigenous women of Asia = Larawan ng katutubong kababaihan sa Asya = Un portrait des femmes autochtones d'Asie = Portret perempuan adat Asia by Ruth Sidchogan-Batani( Book )

Droits et Démocratie, de concert avec le Réseau des femmes autochtones d'Asie (Asian Indigenous Women's Network, AIWN) et l'Alliance des peuples autochtones de l'archipel (AMAN: Aliansi Masyarakat Adat Nusantara), a préparé la présente trousse d'information dans le but de mettre en évidence le travail accompli par les femmes autochtones, qui agissent aux échelons local, national et international afin de faire respecter leurs droits. Étant donné qu'un grand nombre de défis restent à relever pendant la deuxième Décennie internationale des populations autochtones (2005- 2014), le moment est bien choisi pour non seulement explorer les questions qui touchent les femmes autochtones en Asie, mais aussi pour mettre en lumière les forces et les espoirs qui animent ces femmes. La trousse propose également des pistes d'action pour permettre aux femmes autochtones d'utiliser pleinement les instruments juridiques, les forums internationaux et les mécanismes qui pourraient leur être utiles pour faire progresser leur cause
