• Humanitarian and Emergency Settings
      Human rights are relevant to humanitarian programming and in protection responses to emergency situations. In the first place humanitarian responses, in general, are intended to address acute cases of human rights deprivation. Human rights violations and resulting protection issues are frequently a feature of complex crisis situations and are often a significant source of the problem that has contributed to, or been exacerbated by, conflict. The protection of human rights is intrinsic to effective humanitarian action.
