Defending Dignity Part III: Assessing resources

CESR and the Asia-Pacific Forum (APF) present a new manual - ‘Defending Dignity’ - designed to strengthen the role of National Human Rights Institutions in monitoring and enforcing economic, social and cultural rights. The manual is complemented by a series of motion graphics combined with explanatory videos. This section tackles the often-challenging issue of assessing resources. It introduces the policy areas that are relevant to consider when assessing resources, before showing how budget analysis approaches can be used to investigate how resources are allocated, generated and spent.
