Editing and revising an article on Human trafficking in Finland[edit]

Hello WikiProjet: Human Rights! My name is Anniina and I am currently an undergraduate at Rice University. I am in a Poverty, Justice and Human Capabilities class, and for an assignment for that class I am going to start revising and expanding the article on Human trafficking in Finland. I am planning on building a whole new structure of sections and subsections, redistributing the already existing information into these new sections as well as adding new information. I planning on having a section for the victims and the help the victims receive. I would like to include a more comprehensive section on the prevention of human trafficking in Finland; what kinds of organizations there are, how the public health sector contributes and what challenges there are for the preventing work that takes place. I will also find more sources and work on improving the citations of the existing article. In addition, I want to talk about the specific laws in Finland that deal with human trafficking. Does anyone have an opinion on whether I should link the section to the Finnish law article, even though the article is basically nonexistent? My goal is to improve the article on Human Trafficking in Finland as much as I possibly can, and therefore I would gladly welcome any tips, ideas or advice anyone might have. Thank you!

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Adding information to Human rights in Nepal page[edit]

Hi everyone! My name is Saira and I am also an undergraduate student at Rice University. I am editing the Human rights in Nepal article for a school project; it is currently stub class, and I'd like to raise it to at least B-class. Right now the article only exists as an introduction (with a lot of uncited information) and a section on gender equality. I am planning to add sections on poverty, education, health, and torture human rights issues in an effort to increase balance and scope of the article, as well as a section on the history of the 1996-2006 conflict that has so affected the human rights situation in Nepal. I'm using sources from researchers such as Singh, Parker, Upreti, and more. If anyone has any suggestions for another important section to add, I'd love your thoughts.

Thanks! Saw329 (talk) 20:28, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia Primary School invitation[edit]

Hi everybody. On behalf of the teams behind the Wikipedia Primary School research project, I would like to announce that the articles Sexism, Nelson Mandela and Apartheid, of interest to this wikiproject, were selected a while ago to be reviewed by external experts. We'd now like to ask interested editors to join our efforts and improve the articles before March 15, 2015 (any timezone) as they see fit; a revision will be then sent to the designated experts for review (for details, please see each articles' talk page). Any notes and remarks written by the external experts will be made available on the articles' talk pages under a CC-BY-SA license as soon as possible, so that you can read them, discuss them and then decide if and how to use them. Please sign up here to let us know you're collaborating. Thanks a lot for your support! Elitre (WPS) (talk) 18:05, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Request input on gendercide[edit]

There's a lot of activity at violence against men, including a lot of references to gendercide. Input from users with knowledge of genocide research would be appreciated.
