Our Work in Indonesia
We initiated activities in Indonesia in 1999. An office was established in Jakarta in 2005. Our work in Indonesia focuses on supporting the implementation of the Regional Asia Programme on Human Rights and Sustainable Development (2017-2021). In particular, we work to promote the concept of human rights cities and foster a local dialogue around challenges and solutions related to the human rights, gender equality, environment and SDGs.
On our activities in Asia
The institute has been active in Asia for over 25 years. In 1996 we initiated cooperation in the region with human rights training courses for Chinese high-level justice officials. During the following years our number of activities in the region grew and our programmes expanded.
