Human Rights Shorthand

11 Apr 2016

The purpose of the UN-Habitat Human Rights Shorthand is to provide UN-Habitat staff with an overview of the United Nations human rights context within the purview of UN-Habitat’s mandate. The Shorthand is not an exhaustive reference document, yet contains key references to human rights and urbanization, the Human Rights-Based Approach, the international human rights protection framework as well as agreed human rights-based language. This Shorthand also contains links for further reading and reference.
