Incorporating International Human Rights

Incorporation of international human rights treaties into domestic law is one of the most important steps a country can take towards making human rights real for all of us.

Incorporation means that a rights-based approach is taken to decision-making by public bodies. It means that human rights can be enforced, ultimately in court. Governments can be held accountable to their standards.

Incorporation is an important step towards a human rights-based culture.
