The BBC World Service Trust has established an initiative called I have a right to... in association with the Human Rights Projects Fund of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office

This project has been set up because the continuing violation of human rights around the world means there is an increasing need for individuals to know their own rights and understand issues that affect them directly.

The World Service's I have a right to... project aims to fulfill these needs.

It is designed to assist people to make informed choices about their lives and participate in discussion and debate and consists of radio programmes, produced by 25 language services, international awareness-raising events, debates and an excellent website.

The website offers case studies, radio programmes, reporters stories, briefings on key issues/treaties and numerous useful links.
