I. Introduction
This chapter will attempt to provide a guide to the ever expanding area of international human rights law. The focus will be on the electronic sources available for this topic, regardless of the format (CD-ROM, the Web, and commercial online services). This chapter will include general tips for doing research as well as for locating necessary documents and materials. The scope of this chapter will encompass both primary and secondary sources (including documents from non-governmental organizations). The emphasis will be on English-language materials, but the availability of resources in other languages is noted. II. Brief History
The concepts of humanitarian intervention, self-determination, and providing relief to the wounded and other victims of armed conflicts can be viewed as the roots of human rights law. Modern international human rights law dates from World War II and its aftermath. The United Nations Charter (, signed June 26, 1945, sought to acknowledge the importance of human rights and established it as a matter of international concern.

"A publisher is supposed to furnish a forum for the free play of the intellect, in so far as he possibly can. That is the whole American theory that opinions can be given a means of full expression, and that the public, hearing all of them and considering them all, will eventually approximate a right conclusion. Every profession has its own particular code of ethics, its own morality that its members must adhere to, or they betray it. And a primary element in the morality of a publisher is that he shall not let his own personal views obstruct the way for the full expression of counter-views." Maxwell Perkins, Editor, Scribner's Magazine, 1933

Under a Shadow: Civil and Political Rights in Zimbabwe
A Human Rights Watch Briefing Paper June 6, 2003
  • Summary Background Political Violence

    State security forces arrested over 400 activists and other citizens, and many more were violently attacked both by security forces and by ruling party militia. The government deployed large numbers of military personnel to low-income suburbs of Harare and other urban areas. Further, in the run-up to two parliamentary by-elections held on March 29 and 30, the MDC was prevented from undertaking normal campaign activities, and known party activists were detained, beaten and harassed. The reaction of the government and the security forces during these weeks illustrated a clear and systematic repression of MDC activists, which amounted to a criminalization of political affiliation. This report, based on over three weeks of research by Human Rights Watch, finds that Zimbabwe has suffered a serious breakdown in law and order, resulting in major violations of human rights. This environment has been created largely by actions of the ranking government officials and state security forces. State-sponsored violence and repression have expanded their scope both geographically and in terms of targets over the past year. The political violence endemic in the rural areas since 2000 has now become common in urban centers, and those targeted now include non-political actors, including civic organizations and church leaders.

ON JUDGE WILLEM HEATH January 8th, 2001

January 8, 2001 The Heath Special Investigations Commission has already recovered almost R1,057-million from fraudulent government officials since it was launched by the country's first black President Nelson Mandela and is the country's only wholly independent watchdog to help keep government officials honest.
The unit has close links with similar international watchdog organisations such as Transparency International, headquartered in Germany; the Global Anti-Corruption Conference in Washington, DC; and others.
It is inconceivable to me that President Thabo Mbeki and his entire cabinet have now launched such a vicious attack on precisely Mr Justice Willem Heath, who is known for his sterling work at head of this commission.
I wish to object most strenuously to Mbeki's vicious attacks against Judge Heath personally and I wholeheartedly support the campaign by Mrs Patricia de Lille, the PAC's chief opposition whip in Parliament, who insists on retaining Judge Heath and wants him to head to investigation into the SA government's controversial R46-billion arms purchases.

Civil rights movement
Word: Word Starts with Ends with Definition While the term civil rights movement is often used to refer to the US civil rights movement The Civil rights movement in the United States has been a long, primarily nonviolent struggle to bring full civil rights and equality under the law to all Americans. It has been made up of many movements, though it is often used to refer to the struggles between 1945 and 1970 to end discrimination against African-Americans and to end racial segregation, especially in the U.S. South. Some of the other struggles, often but not always working together, include the women's liberation movement, the gay liberation movement, the disabled rights movement, and many socioeconomic class-based movements. The civil rights movement has had a tremendous and lasting impact on United States society, both in its tactics and in increased social and legal acceptance of civil rights.

by Marisa Helms , Minnesota Public Radio
February 26, 2003
Bishop Tutu was awarded an honorary degree by University of Minnesota. (MPR Photo/Marisa Helms) Archbishop Desmond Tutu says his native South Africa has made great strides since the end of apartheid. But he says his country still has many challenges to face including AIDS, poverty, and crime. He says the international community can play a role in making his country and the world, a more peaceful place. Tutu spoke in Minneapolis as part of the University of Minnesota's Great Conversations series.
Tutu says the system of apartheid that oppressed black South Africans for generations still lives in the shadows as his country strives for education and equality for everyone.
