The world’s first mobile application to provide information about human rights and freedoms is now available in Vietnamese.
RightsApp was launched in English by the Australian Human Rights Commission in partnership with LexisNexis in 2016. It allows users to quickly and easily search international human rights conventions, declarations and treaties, topic by topic.
“An important step in the realisation of human rights is having the language of international human right instruments available for everyone,” said Commission President, Emeritus Professor Rosalind Croucher.
“Now with this innovative app available in Vietnamese, we are able to put human rights in the hands of many,” she said.
“Advancing the rule of law is one of our most fundamental core values at LexisNexis,” said Greg Dickason, Managing Director of LexisNexis Pacific.
“We were extremely honoured to have partnered with the Commission to develop RightsApp and we are equally honoured today to support the Commission in their work to advance the equal and free access of human rights on a more global scale,” he said.
The Vietnamese version of RightsApp was developed under the Commission’s Human Rights Education Partnership with the Ho Chi Minh Academy of Politics.
The Human Rights Education Partnership is supported by the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
