Monitoring International Human Rights

Rahul Rai (Author)
Synopsis Human rights are universal legal guarantees protecting individuals and groups against actions by governments which interfere with fundamental freedoms and human dignity. Today, we know more than ever that without respect for the rights of individual, no nation, no community, no society can be truly free. International concern with human rights is the means for the orderly regulation and disciplining of international society in the service of all mankind. Human rights monitoring is a broad term which describes the active collection, verification and immediate use of information to address human rights problems. It includes gathering information about incidents, observing events such as elections, trails, demonstrations, etc., visiting sites such as places of detention and refugee camps, discussions with government authorities to obtain information and to pursue remedies and other immediate follow-up. The book is intended for several direct beneficiaries: to those responsible for training human rights officers in the performance of human rights monitoring functions in United Nations field operations. It will also be useful to the chief of each human rights field operator in developing policies for the particular operation. The ultimate beneficiaries of this book will be the individuals and communities whose human rights are threatened or violated and who can depend upon the assistance that may be offered through human rights field operations.

About the author

Rahul Rai

Rahul Rai is an alumni of St. Stephens’ College, New Delhi. His Selection as the Founder Director of Indian Institute of Human Rights (IIHR), New Delhi has been based on his knowledge of human rights education at postgraduate level as well as the initiatives taken by him in the process of the establishment of IIHR in December 1999 and its inauguration by Justice J.S. Verma, Chairman, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on the occasion of Human Rights Say. Rahul rai’s contribution in contacting more than 50 universities and advising them to get themselves associated with the Indian Institute of Human Rights (IIHR) for co-sponsoring the post Graduate Programme in Human Rights will go a long way in the training in the new millennium. As the study and concern about human rights has remained largely confined to international lawyers, diplomats and statesmen, Rahul Rai has been active to see that these rights increasingly become the subjects of concern for national lawyers, activists, reformers, policy makers and other citizenry. Rahul Rai has organised and participated in many national as well as international conferences related to human rights, civil liberties, disaster mitigation, sustainable development and depolluting technologies. Besides collaborating with selected Indian universities, the author is presently working on the WIBP’s joint venture ‘international education project’ for inviting reputed British universities for offering need-based programmmes in India.
