Human Rights Documentation and Advocacy: A Guide for Organizations of People Who Use Drugs aims to help activists recognize human rights abuses that are systematically conducted and condoned by state and non-state actors and silently suffered by people who use drugs. The guidebook focuses on providing activists with the tools necessary to develop a human rights advocacy plan, particularly by documenting abuses against people who use drugs.
The guide includes the following topics:
Starting human rights documentation
Guidelines for documenting human rights violations
committed against people who use drugs
Guidelines for conducting interviews
Monitoring legal systems
This project was undertaken with the financial support of the International Harm Reduction Development Program of the Open Society Institute and the Government of Canada provided through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).
