Human Rights Approach Guide

Human Rights Approach Guide

The Council of Europe's Practical Guide on the Human Rights Approach for Co-operation Projects provides clear and user-friendly information, guidance and tools on how to apply this approach in practice.

It consists of four parts; a Guide introducing the CoE's human rights approach (HRA) and which contains guidance on how to apply it in all project phases; a Q&A explaining and clarifying any possible misconceptions on the HRA; and two checklists for initiating and planning projects and for implementing projects.

The Practical Guide was developed by a group of staff volunteers, following internal consultations with staff. It is aimed at the Secretariat of the Council of Europe, particularly the parts working on co-operation projects.

The Practical Guide can be found here.
