In this field it has proved to be extremely effective, especially during the last six years when it has introduced a number of legal initiatives. The Organisation has launched a range of campaigns to raise public awareness, primarily focusing on the Right to Life but also highlighting the importance of social and cultural rights.By investigating the Council of Europes most recent public campaigns, this study aims to identify the linguistic and visual means of persuasion used to promote and disseminate human rights protection. The multimodal text analysis highlights the various elements of Promotion, Popularisation, and Pedagogy (the 3 Ps) which subtly overlap, both to raise awareness on human rights issues and promote the Institution itself.This book will be of interest to researchers and students in human rights, linguistics, rhetoric and communication studies.
