Human rights are affected by virtually all human activities and realities.

The themes according to which the activities in Compass are organised provide the reader and facilitator with essential background information on these themes, usually sufficient to be able to run the activities and discuss the themes from a human rights perspective.

The facilitators are encouraged to do further research and to use additional sources of information.

The background information on "General Human Rights" is found in chapter 4 of the manual; there is therefore no specific section for it in this chapter.
