Supporting civil society human rights work

Independent media, academia, civil society, and a healthy political system are all necessary components in achieving real reform and in avoiding abuse of power. In a number of OSCE countries, the government is increasingly repressing critical voices. Both through participation in international networks and by means of its own project work in 2011-2015, NHC has worked to defend and protect organisations and individuals that fall victim to this repression.
