How to become a human rights professional is not an academic book on human rights law, but a practical career guide for anyone who wants to learn more about human rights advocacy, whether they are just starting or have years of experience.

"I absolutely LOVE THIS BOOK! I learned a lot reading this. Human rights need to be recognized as more than a buzz phrase, they're grounded in our everyday experiences." - Violeta Antovska Diplomatic Security Officer to the Permanent Mission of Ghana to the UN

Human rights work is much more than just providing volunteer service to your community. If done right, this career can be both highly fulfilling and financially lucrative. In this book, you'll discover step-by-step how to become a successful human rights professional – from delivering human rights training and advocating for human rights to offering consultancy services or opening your own NGO.

Understanding human rights can be confusing especially because they aren't defined in one place. There is no one-size-fits-all definition of human rights, and often times human rights get mixed up with civil rights, political rights, procedural rights, liberties, and freedoms.

The book is designed to be a quick read with actionable advice that can help you improve your knowledge, skills and advance your career in the field of human rights.

The book covers topics such as:

  • What are Human Rights?
  • Human Rights vs civil rights and other types of rights
  • The difference between an activist and an advocate
  • The role of human rights education
  • How to create your own NGO
  • What is a Human Rights Consultant
  • Conducting human rights training
  • How to engage in legislative advocacy for human rights
