Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the effectiveness of domestic human rights DNGOs in the United States, Britain and Germany. It applies an approach developed by the author to the case studies to determine their effectiveness in mobilising law in defence of human rights. The material drawn from the Internet, such as texts published by government bodies, legal decisions and texts from other bodies such as lawyers? associations or publishers, is used in this chapter in two different ways. Firstly, as in Program Evaluation, some of this material expresses opinions about the subject under investigation. These opinions are triangulated in a similar way to the methods of Program Evaluation and Sociology of Law. Secondly, some of this material is investigated merely in terms of its proportional frequency on a website, Internet publication or the Internet generally. This is recorded as the number of ?hits? on particular search engines.

Keywords: Britain; domestic human rights; Domestic Non-Government Organisation (DNGO); Germany; United States
