Latest Natural Justice E-module: Introduction to the United Nations (UN) Human Rights System


Natural Justice has developed a draft e-learning module introducing the UN Human Rights System to support communities and practitioners in increasing understanding of key international human rights legal frameworks.  This e-learning module supplements existing e-learning modules and the “BCP: A Toolkit for Community Facilitiators“.

The module seeks to provide an insight into:

  • The United Nations;
  • Human rights generally (including the International Bill of Rights and core human rights treaties non-derogable rights and permissible restrictions on rights);
  • The implementation and monitoring of human rights standards (including charter-and treaty-based mechanisms); and,
  • Key human rights institutions and enforcement mechanisms for Indigenous Peoples.

It is targeted at communities and anyone who is interested in an introduction to the UN human rights system.

The module can be downloaded here. The document is not final, and any comments can be directed to Holly Shrumm (holly(at) and Harry Jonas (harry(at)
