New Website and Campaign on Anniversary of Human Rights Covenants

      Comments Off on New Website and Campaign on Anniversary of Human Rights Covenants

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. A year-long campaign “Our Rights. Our Freedoms. Always.” aims to promote and raise awareness of the two Covenants on a new website.

Head to the website to find out why the rights and freedoms set out in the Covenants are even more relevant today. Or see whether your country has ratified the Covenants and Protocols and learn more about how to claim your rights. Don’t forget to take the human rights quiz to see what you would do in situations where your rights are in jeopardy.

The collection of the Law Library includes commentaries on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
