Human Rights Monitoring

  • Human Rights Monitoring

Human rights monitoring is a unique program designed to instantly track and respond to incidents of human rights violation. The program encompasses systematic tracking, documenting and responding to violations through well-defined methodologies:

  • LHRC works closely with trained human rights monitors and paralegals designated from more than 28 districts in different regions of Tanzania mainland. Paralegals and human rights monitors double as major informers of rights violation and messengers during issues follow up.
  • After receiving incidents of human rights violation, LHRC analyses and identify issues for advocacy and plot for redress to the victims.
  • The program provides for both direct and indirect redress to the victims of rights violation. The Centre establishes networks for referral, linkages and engagement to address issues of human rights violations with various state agents and departments e.g. police force and immigration.
  • LHRC goes further to solicit and organize consultation sessions with identified duty bearers and stakeholders to present issues that need their attention. Under LHRC works closely with Tanzania Police Force following the memorandum of understating (MoU) signed by LHRC and Tanzania Police Force.
  • In addition, LHRC under this program oversees the wellbeing of human rights clubs in Tanzania mainland.
