Summary:This publication is a user-friendly and authoritative publication on United Nations human rights bodies and mechanisms, explaining how they work and exploring the many important ways that civil society actors including NGOs can contribute to their work. This publication is addressed to the civil society actors who, every day in every part of the world, contribute to the promotion and protection of human rights, and it ultimately aims at enabling more people to access and make claim to their human rights through effective use of United Nations human rights bodies and mechanisms. The Handbook includes information on: OHCHR's mandate, role and activities, OHCHR's fellowship and training programmes, OHCHR's publications and resource materials , the human rights treaty bodies, the Human Rights Council, the special procedures, the universal periodic review, How to submit complaints on alleged human rights violations; and funds and grants available to civil society. The Handbook also includes best practice examples of civil society collaboration with OHCHR in the field and civil society contributions to the work of United Nations human rights bodies and mechanisms. Further, it lists key contacts at OHCHR.
