Human Trafficking in Germany. Strengthening Victim's Human Rights

The first study – "A human rights approach against human trafficking - International obligations and the status of implementation in Germany" – analyses how the prohibition of human trafficking and the resulting state obligations are anchored in human rights. The more recent specialised international agreements on human trafficking and law-making in the European Union are then presented. The emphasis is on the Council of Europe Convention, which professes to treat human trafficking in a human rights context. The study summarizes elements of a human rights approach against human trafficking and makes recommendations for further development of policies. The second study - "Compensation and remuneration for trafficked persons in Germany" – investigates how trafficked persons can be assisted in asserting their claims against perpetrators for compensation and remuneration and their claims against the state for compensation. The legal framework, particularly wage and compensation claims, is analysed and impediments to their practical implementation are shown. Key players from the state and civil society who come into contact with trafficked persons are identified, along with the need for advanced training and potential partners for cooperation.

Jahresbericht/Annual Report 2008

One major area in which human rights have certainly come under pressure in recent years is security policy. This is a global phenomenon which includes Europe and Germany. The German Institute for Human Rights therefore paid special attention in 2008 to those security policy developments in Germany and Europe which threaten to diminish the value placed on rights to freedom. People often lose sight of the fact that there are human rights concerns behind apparently "technical" concepts such as data protection. The anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights therefore marked a welcome occasion for reflecting in concrete terms on the conditions people need to live their lives in dignity and liberty, including in the light of current security policy developments.

Policy Paper No. 13: The Durban Review Conference - Why the EU Governments Should Participate

At the Third World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance held in Durban in 2001, governments committed themselves to take a number of practical measures against racism. A general review of these commitments is to take place at a United Nations Conference in Geneva in late April 2009. Known as the Durban Review, the planned conference has been the focus of fierce controversy. To contribute towards a better understanding of the situation, the paper will discuss some of the background and history behind the dispute.

Local and Regional Economic Development in Ghana - Scoping Study: Supporting creation of a business enabling environment through development of Mechanisms for Complaint and Redress

Can a complaint and redress mechanism support an enabling environment for small and medium-sized businesses in Ghana? This question is discussed in this scoping study, conducted by two GTZ initiatives, the Local and Regional Development Programme in Ghana and the "Realising Human Rights in Development Cooperation" project in Germany. The authors suggest a modest approach. A complaint and redress mechanism should be hosted at the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice; several other recommendations as to the mechanism are given.

Jahresbericht/Annual Report 2007

With Germany holding the EU Presidency in the first half of the year, one of the main issues for the German Institute for Human Rights in 2007 was the human rights policy of the European Union. At the end of 2006 the Institute made recommendations to the German government about how to use its presidency to strengthen the human rights dimension of EU policy. These related to the EU's system of fundamental rights and to various policy fields such as data protection in internal security, guarding the EU's external borders, immigration and asylum, and the European Security and Defence Policy. At the end of 2007 the Institute took on the reporting function for Germany for the new EU Agency for Fundamental Rights that was founded in March 2007.
