Human Rights LibraryApplied Human Rights Researchwww.humanrightslibrary.orgThe online University of Minnesota Human Rights Librarycarries one of the largest collections in the world of morethan 85,000 core human rights documents, includingseveral hundred human rights treaties and other primaryinternational human rights instruments. The site alsoprovides more than 4,000 links and a unique search devicefor multiple human rights sites. Documents are availablein 9 languages - Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Japanese,Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.In 2007, the Human Rights Library has seen major expansion of its contents and usership. It continues to be one ofthe most comprehensive and updated sources of humanrights information in the world. This year, users of theLibrary have logged over 3 million individual user sessions,making over 15 million hits. On December 10, HumanRights Day, the Human Rights Center launched its latestaddition, the Korean Human Rights Library.We have added a new archive entitled United States Military Medicine in War on Terror Prisons, which containswell over 60,000 pages of documents and is accessible atwww.umn.edu/humanrts/OathBetrayed. The purpose ofthis website is to promote scholarship of medical activities, ethics, and policies pertaining to detention facilities inIraq, Afghanistan, and Guantánamo Bay that are managedby the United States Department of Defense and its intelligence agencies. Assembled and organized by Dr. StevenMiles, Professor of Bioethics here at the U of M, this massive collection of U.S. government documents is brokendown into various indexes, including: Large Investigations,Policies and Directives, Medcom [Medical Command],Deaths, Interrogations, Health Care & Neglect, and Witness& Silence. Thanks to this site, activists, advocates, andlawyers working on human rights and war-on-terror detentions can readily and easily access government documentsin the course of their research.We have also expanded our Resources for Researching Country Conditions tool, located at www.umn.edu/humanrts/research. This tool allows users to quickly andeasily find human rights documentation on specific countries. We have developed several more successful modelsfor country resources, including Ethiopia, India, NorthKorea, South Korea, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zimbabwe, andthere are more on the way. As we continue to developthis resource to be more and more comprehensive, we areconfident that it will eventually become one of our bestreference tools.2The Arabic Human Rights Library has made considerableprogress in 2007. Still the World Wide Web’s largest collection of core human rights documents in Arabic, the ArabicHuman Rights Library has seen the addition of hundreds ofnew documents during 2007, including many core humanrights treaties and over 120 new country reports fromUN treaty bodies. In addition to its contents, the ArabicLibrary’s popularity has grown steadily in the past year,with over 563,620 individual user sessions in the past year,compared to 533,885 in the previous year. We are alsohappy to report that we have met one of our long-standinggoals of establishing a Mirror Site in the Middle East, whichis hosted by the nongovernmental organization, Women’sForum for Research and Training (www.wfrt.org) in Taiz,Yemen.We have continued to develop and expand the ChineseHuman Rights Library over the last year, adding over 60new treaties and other core human rights instruments.The Human Rights Center’s work has focused on threemain areas: adding new material, making existing materialavailable in Simplified and Traditional Chinese formats foruse in different Chinese-speaking communities, and ensuring the consistency and accuracy of the materials. Newadditions include materials related to bioethics and humanrights, human rights guidelines for business, the rightsof non-citizens, and economic rights. Use of the ChineseLibrary has grown significantly as well, with over 125,703individual user sessions in the past year, compared to69,374 in the previous year.The Russian Human Rights Library has experienced excellent growth in both resources and usership. In the courseof the last year, over 100 new documents have been addedto the collection, including country reports, thematicreports of special rapporteurs appointed by the UN HumanRights Council, government reports and replies to recommendations by UN human rights treaty bodies, alternativereports of non-governmental organizations, and decisionsof the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in relationto Russia. Alternative reports of non-governmental organizations to the UN treaty bodies were also added to thewebsite. The Russian Library’s statistics reveal 301,372user sessions in the past year, compared with 276,902 inthe preceding year. The Human Rights Center has appreciated working with the Center for the Development ofDemocracy and Human Rights in Moscow to expand anddevelop our Russian archive.University of Minnesota Human Rights CenterThe Right to a Fair Trial in MilitaryCommission ProceedingsFLACSO-Mexico and the University of Minnesota:Innovative Approaches to CollaborationThis year, the Human Rights Center was awardeda grant from the JEHT Foundation to provide legalassistance to the Defense Counsel of the Office ofMilitary Commissions. At stake are the human rightsof “war on terror” detainees, chiefly those concerningthe right to a fair trial and other rights implicated bythe upcoming Military Commission proceedings. Theproject formalizes and expands on the work that wehave already undertaken; the Human Rights Centerinitially connected with the Military Defense Counselwhen they requested the preparation of a memo onhow they might use international fair trial rights to defend the Guantánamo detainees.The Human Rights Center is proud to be a partner inthe new initiative, FLACSO-Mexico and the Universityof Minnesota: Innovative Approaches to Collaboration, bringing together the Mexico campus of FacultadLatino-Americana de Ciencias Sociales (FLACSO) withthe University of Minnesota in a bold and innovativeinterdisciplinary collaboration focusing on education,immigration, and human rights.As it currently stands, military defense attorneys areat a major disadvantage relative to the prosecution,suffering chiefly from a lack of financial and staffingresources. Meanwhile, the Department of Defensehas retained many lawyers and investigators, withample resources, to prepare prosecutions. To helpmitigate these disadvantages and ensure that therights of “war on terror” detainees are upheld, theproject team, consisting of supervising staff membersand research interns, will create a brief bank in orderto provide the Defense Counsel with legal argumentsand frameworks to which they would otherwise nothave adequate access. In the long-term, we hope thatour efforts will work toward restoring the credibilityand integrity of the U.S. justice system in the eyes ofthe international community, as well as ensuring thefair trial rights of anyone who falls under U.S. jurisdiction.In February, Human Rights Center Co-Director KristiRudelius-Palmer, along with Human Rights ProgramDirector Barbara Frey, traveled to FLACSO-Mexico’scampus to deliver presentations and inaugurateFLACSO’s new Human Rights and Democracy Master’s Degree Program. In October, the University ofMinnesota partners hosted a FLACSO delegation oncampus to formalize a collaborative research, training, and learning plan. As part of this visit, the HumanRights Center hosted a joint University of Minnesotaand FLACSO faculty for a Symposium on HumanRights Education: Common Issues Facing Minnesotaand Mexico on October 4, 2007. The event broughttogether community and university leaders on thetopics of immigration and indigenous rights issues.FLACSO-UMN delegation meet with Minnesota SenatorPatricia Torres Ray at the State Capitol2007 Annual Report3

These include comprehensive curriculum units, lesson-planning tools, online studentand community action tools, and training opportunitiesonline. This is My Home Toolkits are currently being distributed statewide to Minnesota schools and communitymembers, such as Human Rights commissioners, and globally via the Internet, free of charge.Educators can use the Toolkit to: Address school or community human rights issues (e.g., bullying, discrimination, hate crimes)through the human rights framework; Teach about local and global human rights issueswhile meeting Minnesota educational standards; Promote the value and practice of Human RightsEducation, equality, and social justice by teachingabout local and international human rights standards; Integrate human rights issues into any school subject or the entire school curriculum; Foster a culture of human rights and responsibility through school and community-wide surveys,films, and other activities; Establish and maintain partnership betweenschools and community members.Since November 2005, the Human Rights Center has registered more than 2,580 individuals on the This is My Homewebsite. The Human Rights Center has also distributed6 8 training sessions conducted in variousparts of Minnesota in 2007 Registrants from 124 countries and 48 statesWe have also established successful partnership with localschools to promote and test out various Human RightsEducation tools. Due to a successful partnership with alocal school principal, Len Rothlisberger, the Human RightsTemperature questionnaire is now being used district-widein Grand Rapids. This tool has also been further adjustedfor the use in elementary school. A long-term partner, St.Paul teacher, Lynn Schultz, is field-testing the new versionin her classroom at J.J. Hill Montessori School. The newversion can be downloaded over 1,800 This is My Home Toolkits to educators throughout Minnesota.The Center conducted 8 training sessions for teachers andcommunity educators during 2007, including a four dayHuman Rights Curriculum Writing Academy. In 2006-2007,Minnesota teachers participated in a pilot set of This is MyHome workshops designed for educators from 6 communities (Grand Rapids, Minneapolis, Moorhead, Rochester, St.Cloud, and St. Paul) with a grant from the Education Minnesota Foundation. The goal was to expose educators torelevant knowledge, skills, and attitudes that could fostera positive and dynamic classroom and school climate, aswell as to help them implement This is My Home and create connections with students and the larger community.These face-to-face exchanges were also meant to be aforum for sharing effective practices by documenting andevaluating ways in which teachers are integrating culturalcompetency and HRE activities into the curriculum andschool. In the course of the academy, 16 educators developed 15 new Human Rights Education curriculum units,ranging in grades from kindergarten to 12th grades and including both in class and after-school lessons. Topics rangefrom school bullying to discrimination and genocide.The new units are available online .phpWhile working with pilot communities, the Human RightsCenter was able to test various HRE teacher training andprofessional development models collecting and applyingparticipants’ feedback. As a result, the Center came upwith a 4-day Human Rights Curriculum Writing Academy,implemented in cooperation with the Northwest SuburbanIntegration School District, as one of the most successfulHRE training models. The academy allows teachers to firstlearn about human rights and human rights language, andthen apply their knowledge in developing human rightscurriculum units for their classrooms. The Center is nowpromoting this model to other communities and partners.University of Minnesota Human Rights CenterNatela Jordan, Education Coordinator at the Human RightsCenter, presenting at the Education Minnesota conference inOctober.This is My Home was also offered as one of the sessionsat the Education Minnesota Professional conference as apart of the Minnesota Global Education Network (MNGEN)presentation.

Please check our News &Action section often to stay updated on This is My Homeand other local and international human rights ct/newsandaction.shtmlInternational Women’s Rights Action Watchwww.iwraw.netInternational Women’s Rights Action Watch (IWRAW) isan independent organization based at the University ofMinnesota and affiliated with the Human Rights Center.IWRAW was organized in 1985 at the World Conference onWomen in Nairobi, Kenya, to promote recognition of women’s human rights under the Convention on the Eliminationof All Forms of Discrimination against Women (the CEDAWConvention). IWRAW now is the primary internationalresource for using international human rights treaties topromote women’s human rights in the family, the community, the nation, and the globe. Human rights treatiescarry a continuing legal obligation and thus countries thatratify the CEDAW Convention agree to take all appropriatemeasures to improve the status of women and to changecustoms and laws that impede women’s advancement.IWRAW was founded on the belief that the human rightsof women and girls are essential to development, and thatgovernments and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs)can be encouraged to understand and apply human rightsprinciples to achieve equality. IWRAW operates as aninternational resource and communications center thatserves activists, scholars, and organizations throughout theworld.IWRAW is working with other US-based organizations topromote the CEDAW Convention ratification. Ratificationis essential to rebuilding the stature of the United Statesas a global citizen as well as to increasing accountabilityof the U.S. government to its own citizens. The UnitedStates is the only industrialized country—and one of onlyeight countries in the world—that has not ratified theCEDAW Convention. IWRAW’s manual on reporting underthe CEDAW Convention, Assessing the Status of Women,is available in all six UN languages: IWRAW provides information resources for navigatingthrough the United Nations system and using the UNto increase effective advocacy. In addition, IWRAW hasdesigned the Equality and Women’s Economic, Social andCultural Rights: A Guide to Implementation and Monitoringunder the International Covenant on Economic, Social andCultural Rights, to assist NGOs in using this Covenant. OnMay 17th, IWRAW, in collaboration with the Urban Justice Center and Center for Reproductive Rights, hosted areception honoring members of the UN Committee on theElimination of Discrimination Against Women.2007 Annual Report7
