Human Rights Approach in Immigration Advocacy

Updated: Nov 27, 2023

Human rights advocacy serves as a crucial tool for those aiming to advance social justice for immigrants in the United States. Using a Human Rights Approach in Immigration Advocacy: An Introduction is a 2013 publication by Robert Pauw, Rebecca Sharpless, and Judith L. Wood that outlines the potential of human rights advocacy in shaping a fairer future for immigrants in the United States. Abstract Human rights advocacy can be a useful tool for those who seek to advance the cause of social justice for immigrants in the United States. This article summarizes the basic ways in which domestic immigration advocates can effectively incorporate human rights norms and


strategies into both individual case and policy advocacy. It provides an overview of relevant international human rights standards and tribunals, strategies for incorporating human rights norms into more traditional advocacy, and the basics of how to bring a case before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR). To demonstrate how human rights advocacy can intertwine with domestic advocacy on behalf of immigrants, case examples are discussed as well.
