How many human rights can you name? Do you know your rights, or the rights of others? What have they got to do with museums and cultural institutions anyway? If you're unsure of the answer to any of these questions, this short Guide should be of use to you.
|This Guide aims to support museums and museum workers to understand and fulfil their human rights duties with greater confidence, to use human rights as a basis for more effective public service, and to enable more people – whether as individuals, groups or communities – to be able to exercise their basic rights and freedoms through museums. It is not intended to be the last word on the subject, but to be a tool for empowerment.|
