HUMAN RIGHTS education
We offer and develop human rights education together with universities, governments and national human rights institutions around the world.
We work directly with governments, international organizations, national human rights institutions, universities, and the business sector to improve the practical application of human rights. We have presences in Amman, Beijing, Istanbul, Jakarta, Lund, Nairobi and Phnom Penh.
A Human Rights Forum for policy makers
Through our global presence, we provide a unique forum for policy-makers, experts and civil society to engage in solution-oriented dialogue to advance human rights.
Our vision is to contribute to the development of societies based on a human rights culture. To achieve that goal, we work in a results based manner, meaning that our attention is focused on how our activities contribute to and create changes.
