Addressing human rights issues is a major objective for intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in the global community. International organizations promote, support, and protect human rights. They also provide service for those affected by human rights violations and abuses. For example, organizations may promote girls’ education and provide services for girls who are forced from school to work in a factory. The strategies that IGOs and NGOs use to address human rights, as well as external factors, greatly impact the outcomes of their efforts.
