International Human Rights Kit.
Woito, Robert, Ed.
Designed for students, educators, and citizens interested in human rights, the booklet presents resources for learning about the facts, perspectives, and existing procedures and institutions to promote human rights. Chapter one explores the relationship between human rights and war. Chapter two presents a self-survey to help readers clarify personal values; a discussion of 49 common questions about human rights; and an examination of the compatibility of social and cultural rights with civil and political rights. In chapter three, transcripts of speeches by government representatives from the United States, Communist world, Third World, and the United Nations offer various perspectives on foreign policy goals and attitudes toward human rights. A detailed analysis of the International Bill of Rights comprises chapter four. Chapter five indicates the international human rights instruments which have been ratified by various countries, and reveals the limited relationship between ratification and enforcement. Chapters six and seven suggest improvements for existing institutions for human rights. Chapters eight and nine examine ways to achieve religious liberty and to improve human rights education. Chapter ten identifies films, books, periodicals, organizations, and activities to help readers become involved in promoting human rights. (Author/AV)
