Case Studies

Human rights work in practical and straight forward ways, bringing common sense into situations where bureaucratic procedures and systems lose sight of people and their individual needs.

The video above is a montage of case studies showing how individuals and service providers are benefiting by incorporating a Human Rights approach.  You can find out about more about each one and watch more detailed videos in the case study pages.

Building greater awareness about human rights and making them real is an ongoing process - a ‘project for our society’. If we understand more about human rights we can help our public institutions bring these rights to life and make a real difference to the quality of people's lives.

How Human Rights affect our lives

If you have children who go to school, if you have a relative in care, if you are detained by the police or if you need medical treatment - your human rights and those of your family may be directly affected. If you see a campaign for patients' rights, calls for greater scrutiny to prevent abuse in old people's homes or protests about the treatment of children with learning disabilities - you're seeing human rights in action.
