Advancing Human Rights Through Knowledge

RWI is a research and academic institution with offices, programmes, and convening power covering 40 countries. We carry out evidence-based human rights research that we integrate with our international programmes, engaging directly with our partners to bring about human rights change for all. The fact that we combine research with direct engagement makes us different to other organisations.

The institute is named after Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who saved tens of thousands of Jews and other people at risk in Hungary at the end of World War II.
