Supporting civil society to promote human rights and democratization in Mongolian prisons

Democratization is a gradual and continuous process, which needs to take into account a country’s socio-economic and cultural context. Each country and society is free to choose and develop its own model, in a locally driven process, but those models must be consistent with universal human rights principles as expressed in relevant international and regional conventions. Thus in order to support civil society in Mongolia to uphold human rights (political, civil, economic, social and cultural) and to promote democratization, CCR implemented the “Supporting civil society to promote human rights and democratization in Mongolian prisons” project.
