|Name||(RUSSIAN) TAKING HUMAN RIGHTS COMPLAINTS TO UN MECHANISMS - A MANUAL (Appendices)|
Intended to enhance capacity within the Kurdish regions, KHRP prepares materials including manuals to provide practical guidance to indigenous lawyers, NGOs and human rights defenders. A new manual published in Russian provides a guide to taking human rights complaints to UN mechanisms.
The manual includes an overview of the three categories of UN human rights bodies: the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, those established by the UN Charter (Charter-based bodies) and those established by provisions in specific legal instruments (treaty-based bodies). In addition, the Manual includes key texts, such as texts of the reservations and declarations entered into by member states in the Kurdish regions, model complaint forms and guidelines for the submission of complaints.
The manual was written and edited by KHRP Executive Director Kerim Yildiz and Legal Officer Anke Stock in conjunction with the Bar Human Rights Committee of England and Wales. It has been published in Russian in conjunction with the Forum.
'Taking Human Rights Complaints to UN Mechanisms - A Manual' in the Russian language is available in the Caucasus or download in full. (Appendices), (Body)
An English translation (ISBN 1 900175 61 4) is available from KHRP for £10.00 (+ P&P)
