FIDH tells its 2013 story in cartoons and there is also Cartooning for Peace

February 10, 2014

For those who understand some French, this is an interesting page which describes the work of the International Federation for Human Rights [FIDH] in CARTOONS! La FIDH raconte son année 2013 en BD – FIDH : mouvement mondial des droits de lHomme.

More generally the power of cartoons in human rights work can be seen in Cartooning for Peace, an initiative thought up by the French cartoonist Plantu, born on 16 October 2006 at UN headquarters in New York after a two-day conference organised by Kofi Annan, the then Secretary General of the United Nations, which brought together the twelve best-known political cartoonists in the world for “unlearning intolerance”.
