Promoting Human Rights Worldwide

globeWe are a research and academic institution that works to promote and advance human rights through knowledge. Since 1984, our mission is to promote universal respect for human rights and humanitarian law. We carry out multi-disciplinary human rights research, provide academic education, support, and advice.

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.
