Human rights advocacy

The NHC works together with other members of the Civic Solidarity Platform on influencing the human dimension policies and practices of the OSCE. Much of our activities directed at the European Union take place as a member of the advocacy team of the EU-Russia Civil Society Forum. Together with partner organisations in specific projects, we engage in lobby and advocacy towards governments or government agencies on the themes of the project. The NHC also interacts with the government and parliament on the human rights policies of the Netherlands; a lot of this work again is done jointly with other NGOs that take part in the Dutch Human Rights NGO Platform.


Current project:

  • Continuation and Further Development of EU - Russia Civil Society Forum
