Lesson Series 54: Human rights monitoring in Sri Lanka

The Issue

Human rights monitoring is an old concept. It is important for a variety of reasons, many of which are specific to the country situations.

Such missions can help countries build up their own justice systems and institutions to monitor and prevent further abuse.
