Assisting the Global Human Rights Movement in Building Social, Economic, Cultural, Civil, and Political Rights for All
Building Democracy
The Building Human Rights WebNet is in the process of migrating to a new system. We apologize for the inconvenience. Click here for a preview.

The global human rights movement challenges the systems, structures, and institutions that create, defend, and extend oppression and repression in a society.

We are all part of the Human Rights Movement

Democracy is not a specific set of institutions but a process that requires dissent.

Democracy is a process that assumes the majority of people, 
over time, given enough accurate information,
the ability to participate in a free and open public debate,
and to vote without intimidation,
reach constructive decisions that benefit the whole of society, and 
preserve liberty, protect our freedoms, extend equality,
and thus defend democracy itself.
