lobby and advocacy

Lobby and advocacy at local, state, national and international level is regarded to be one of the important activities of PBET. It starts with Police, Panchayats, Autonomous Councils, District Administration, Legal Services Authority, Labor Court, Sarba Siksha Abhiyan, Judiciary, National Human Rights institutions, UN and other national and international human rights organizations to raise various issues related to child labor, arbitrary detention, custodial tortures, police atrocities, enforced disappearances, sexual violence, extra judicial killing etc. The report generated in Public hearing on sexual violence held on January 2014 was an important lobby tool for drawing judicial concern upon severe issues of sexual violence and acid attack. PBET was part of the team in preparing the special chapter on GR-30 in the civil society shadow report submitted to CEDAW committee during 58th Session.
