PhilRights’ Information Program focuses on the popularization and dissemination of human rights IEC materials, specifically the release of regular publications. This program ensures that human rights information and updates are made accessible to communities affected by human rights violations, and to people’s organizations (POs), non-government organizations (NGOs) and other groups and individuals supporting the human rights cause. Information is disseminated to target groups through printed materials as well as through forums, conferences, training, among others.
Regular Publications and Information, Education and Communication (IEC) Materials – Regular publications are: 1) Human Rights Forum – a quarterly that tackles current human rights issues and concerns, with articles written in English and Filipino; and 2) In Focus: A Semestral Human Rights Situationer – a bi-annual situationer that focuses on the state of civil-political rights as well as the five focus ESC (economic, social and cultural) rights: food, work, housing, education and health. IEC materials include modules, primers, posters, leaflets, media releases and news features, and video documentaries.
Library – The institution maintains a collection of books, newspaper articles, video documentaries, photographs and other reference and educational materials on human rights issues. The library is open to students, NGO workers, grassroots communities, professionals and researchers.
On–line resource center – PhilRights is developing an on-line human rights resource center. By going on-line, timely human rights data and statistics, materials, situationers and analyses will be made available and accessible to the general public for educational, research, advocacy, lobbying, and reporting requirements and activities.
