People’s Watch (India)

human rights, justice, formation

From 1995 to 1998, People's Watch concentrated its activities on monitoring of human rights violations. In 1998, People's Watch began legal intervention on behalf of victims. Soon after, the need to launch a full-fledged awareness building campaign for human rights became clear, and this was followed, soon afterward, by the realization that victim rehabilitation was also essential. Preceding the United Nations Decade for Human Rights Education, People's Watch began a vigorous training and education program.
