Human rights in the administration of justice: A manual on human rights for judges, prosecutors and lawyers
01 January 2011
The training material on Human Rights in the Administration of Justice developed by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in cooperation with the International Bar Association consists of a Manual and the present Facilitator’s Guide. Together, they support the organization of human rights courses for legal professionals to enable them to apply human rights principles and norms in the exercise of their daily professional activities. The ultimate goal of these educational resources and activities is to strengthen the protection of human rights in and through domestic legal procedures.
The Manual provides basic information on international human rights law and the jurisprudence of universal and regional bodies and national courts. Each chapter addresses a specific human rights area. A selection of the most appropriate areas and material will be necessary, depending on the duration and nature of the course and the type of participants.
