Even though many countries in Europe protect human rights on paper, they often fall short in practice. Populism and discrimination against minority groups are on the rise while the respect for human rights is in decline.

In collaboration with human rights defenders, we focus on advancing Roma rights and LGBTI+ rights, freedom of expression, accountability, and advocacy. We have regional offices in several countries and also work in Brussels to ensure that human rights are high on the EU’s agenda. 

Support brave human rights defenders
