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.

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.

Jahresbericht/Annual Report 2006

The Institute's summer 2006 lecture series "Slavery Today" marked the opening of a new priority area. It focuses on human rights tools with which to combat human trafficking, forced marriages and extreme forms of exploitation of labour. Great public attention was awarded to our study of the social human rights of elderly people under care (Soziale Menschenrechte älterer Personen in Pflege) which addressed structural and human rights deficits. The public presentation of the study set the stage for a series of consultations with representatives of politics, associations and science.
