ELLA Human Rights Study Tour to Mexico

In May and June of 2013, 11 human rights practitioners from Asia and Africa came on a Study Tour to Mexico to learn about different human rights experiences. This tour was organised by Fundar, a Mexican civil society organisation working on human rights and the advancement of substantive democracy.

Regions from the global south are facing similar challenges in ensuring the effective realisation of human rights. Given this context, the ELLA Study Tour to Mexico aimed to share knowledge about four different mechanisms to protect, defend and guarantee human rights. The establishment of a Gender Unit within the Mexican justice system, the recommendations from the Mexico City Human Rights Commission to promote human rights, the protection of victims’ rights to redress, and the use of strategic litigation to demand rights were some of the successful experiences that participants were able to learn about and reflect on,  while considering how to enhance human rights in their own contexts.
