The UN and refugees’ human rights: a manual on how UN human rights mechanisms can protect the rights of refugees

This manual provides practical guidance on how non-governmental organizations can use the UN human rights machinery to protect refugees. It states that people working to protect refugees’ rights in these difficult times should make greater use of the bodies established by the UN to promote and protect human rights. UN Member States have agreed numerous standards and mechanisms to protect human rights, and States can be put under international pressure to abide by them.
