Media Handbook for National Human Rights Institutions
The media is a critical tool in shaping public opinion and setting a social, political and economic agenda. Human rights issues have become increasingly newsworthy. While National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) communicate with the public in a variety of ways, media outlets continue to be one of the most influential carriers of information generated by NHRIs.
This handbook from the Asia Pacific Forum is a practical resource to support NHRIs to work effectively with the media and promote community awareness of human rights issues.
