This Handbook aims to help CSOs, and their partners, understand the meaning of the term “Human rights-based approach”, its principles, content, and its method of application in everyday work in the context of Macedonia. Thus, the chapters are laid out in a simple format to guide the reader through all the fundamentals of HRBA and to provide direction for where further information can be found. Most importantly, the practical objective of the Handbook is to build capacity within CSOs for how they can apply HRBA during the preparation and implementation of strategic documents, programmes, projects and individual activities. The Handbook aspires to set HRBA as a cornerstone for all CSOs in Macedonia and to inspire and inform on the practical arrangements needed to ensure more equitable access to public goods, services and justice.
