Follow-up assignment



The questions below can be a follow-up assignment after the students have got knowledge about the international human rights system. They can also be used for group work. 


  1. Look up a report on a UN treaty body that your country’s government has delivered lately. What are the main issues being addressed? Have non-governmental organisations submitted “shadow reports”? If so; what do these reports add to the issues?


       2. Analyse the response from the UN treaty body. Can the challenges that are addressed in this report be relevant in your work as a journalist?


       3. Find information about a non-governmental organisation or an activist in your country that is working for human rights. Can this information be relevant in your work as a journalist?


      4. Write an article about a person who has had his or her human rights violated.
