Overview

The predominant activity of the NHC since the early 1990s has been the development and implementation of projects aimed at achieving concrete improvements in human rights protection and in the implementation of rule of law standards. Particular attention goes to those groups in society that most need these improvements. Over the last ten years, most projects have been in the fields of prison reform and probation, protection of the rights of survivors of human trafficking, and access to justice at the national and international level. In addition, projects are carried out aimed at supporting and developing civil society human rights work and at influencing human rights policies of governments and international organisations.

 

These are the main topics that we are currently developing and implementing in our activities:

 

  • Prison reform and probation
  • Trafficked persons
  • Strengthening access to justice
  • Supporting civil society human rights work
  • Human rights advocacy
