In all of its projects, the NHC cooperates with organisations in the countries where the activities are located. In the Netherlands. civil society and professionals, such as lawyers have an essential role to play in reform processes and in putting in practice reforms that have been agreed on paper.


The NHC participates in European NGO networks such as the Civic Solidarity Platform, the EU-Russia Civil Society Forum, and the EU Fundamental Rights Platform. In the Netherlands, we are a member of the Netherlands Human Rights NGO Platform (BMO).






Within the Netherlands, the NHC cooperates with a range of experts in the specific areas the projects focus on, including from institutions, such as the Netherlands Custodial Institutions Agency (Dienst Justitiële Inrichtingen), the Council for the Judiciary (Raad voor de Rechtspraak) and the Training and Study Centre for the Judiciary (SSR).
