Human Rights Documentation and Advocacy: A Guide for Organisations of People Who Use Drugs

This guidebook aims to help activists recognize human rights abuses that are systematically conducted and condoned by state and non-state actors and silently suffered by people who use drugs. This book focuses on providing activists with the tools necessary to develop a human rights advocacy plan, particularly by documenting abuses against people who use drugs. Documentation of abuse— whether it be testimonials from victims, official police records, or video footage of the abuse—is pivotal to establishing evidence that will be necessary to ensure that perpetrators are held accountable.
Ultimately, we hope this guidebook will raise awareness of the link between drug use and human rights.
