Line 4: Implementation and effectiveness of human rights PDF Print E-mail

Persons in charge: Manuel Calvo García

Theoretical reflection on rights and their regulatory development should be accompanied by measures which favour their implementation and effectiveness. For this it is necessary to analyse the operators’ practices and the real degree of fulfilment of rights achieved. The main problem faced when carrying out this kind of study arises from the lack of indicators and limited consensus regarding those which do exist. Spain, in line with the Vienna Action Plan, should develop its own system of indicators for measuring progress towards achieving human rights. The configuration of these indicators would make it possible to establish objective parameters from which to measure the results of the projects developed in the sphere of human rights and reinforce examination of the role of juridical operators.  
Summary of contents: To monitor the implementation and effectiveness of rights at the international and state levels; follow-up of the monitoring and assessment activities of the international and state human rights organisations; to assess and, if applicable, develop models enabling the drawing up of strategies of rights enforceability; the development of indicators for human rights with particular emphasis on the so-called  economic, social and cultural rights.
