FoRBLN Toolkit for African Parliamentarians

This Toolkit has been designed by consortium members with African parliamentarians in mind.  The FoRBLN primer is a briefing document that gives parliamentarians an introductory overview of FoRB.  The ‘What is FoRB?‘ toolkit 1 provides more detail of the international legal norms and human rights dimensions of FoRB.  The ‘Why is FoRB important?‘ toolkit 2 gives practical examples and explanations as to why FoRB remains an important dimension in the work of championing human rights.
