The Forum commissions research on human rights issues and uses the findings to develop tools and good practice approaches in TV production.


The development of tools is an iterative process and depends on feedback from productions to ensure that they are relevant and fit for purpose.


The resources are arranged into three 'pathways' for production, procurement and commissioners. Follow the links to those pathways or go directly to the tools you want via the links below. We welcome all suggestions for improvements and revision, as well as requests for additional materials.
