Human Rights in the Pacific Media Guide

How can media in the Pacific support human rights?

This guide is designed for use by Pacific journalists and other media workers, and aims to increase awareness and understanding of the human rights of men, women, boys and girls living in Pacific communities.

The Human Rights in the Pacific Media Guide explains how every person has human rights, what these rights are and how they fit with traditional societies, and what international laws and conventions cover human rights. The guide has practical examples, tips and checklists for reporting on human rights issues, with a focus on reporting human rights abuses relating to logging and mining. It helps journalists confidently prepare stories about human rights, and is also useful for media trainers and students.
