Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA)

Rutgers

Short summary

In RHRN2 we commit to use the Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) in our programming. Rutgers can provide support in getting a better understanding of what the HRBA is and how those involved in RHRN2 can operationalize this key principle in their programmatic goals and internal ways of working.  

What capacity strengthening support can we provide on this topic? 

In RHRN2 we commit to use the Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) in our programming. Rutgers can provide support in getting a better understanding of what the HRBA is and how those involved in RHRN2 can operationalize this key principle in their programmatic goals and internal ways of working.  

What could the CS look like? 

Rutgers can provide support in a number of ways:  

·   Sharing of our materials 

·      Facilitating mutual learning by connecting RHRN members with experience with the HRBA to other members 

·      Contributing to a workshop or meeting as a resource person (online) 

·      Providing advice in operationalization of HRBA in work plans 

·      Providing advice on the integration of the HRBA in advocacy strategies and accountability interventions 

What tools are available?  

To support conversations on the HRBA we developed some materials in the beginning of 2021: 

·       PowerPoint on the HRBA: explaining the concept and its principles, but also how this approach is connected to and can be operationalized in RHRN2; 

·       A guidance note for further reflections on the HRBA which can be useful in planning meetings of RHRN2; 

·       A short quiz on the HRBA, which can be used in combination with the other tools in a session or work shop; 

·       A resource list with references to other relevant resources around the HRBA.  

These documents can be shared upon request (they are not published online) and are available in English and French.  

What languages can this CS support be provided in? 

English and possibly French (dependent on availability of French-speaking staff).
