The mission of the Raoul Wallenberg Institute is to promote universal respect for human rights and humanitarian law, by means of research, academic education and institutional development.
To be a centre of excellence in all fields of operation, contributing to the development of societies based on a human rights culture.
We believe that respect for the inherent dignity of the human being is fundamental and this permeates all our behaviour.
We are committed to our mission and values and we are not going to compromise in respect of independence, trust and quality. Our work is transparent and performed with accountability.
We are a learning institution and encourage everybody to participate by expressing their views and sharing their knowledge. We value all input and viewpoints and are open to constructive dialogue and co-operation with all in order to fulfil our mission.
We continuously strive at maintaining a creative, dynamic and supportive work- and learning environment, so as to inspire others as well as each other to work in line with our mission – to promote universal respect for human rights and humanitarian law.
