International Non-governmental Organizations (INGOs) in the field ofhuman rights have started to proliferate in the late 1960s and early 1970s. INGOssuch as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have been involved inalmost all aspects of the international human rights law since then.INGOs monitor and report the human rights violations in the differentregions of the world. Both intergovernmental organizations and the governmentsmake use of the information provided by the INGOs in their statements andreports.INGOs also take action to end the human rights abuses when necessary. Itis significant that some improvement was reported in more than one third of theurgent action cases issued by Amnesty International.INGOs have also some success stories of human rights standard setting.Rome Statute of International Criminal Court (ICC) would never be drafted andcome into force without NGO participation.It should be emphasized that most of the INGOs scrutinized in this studydeserve the credibility and trust they enjoy in the international community.
