Global Human Rights Defence

GHRD caters to promoting and protecting human rights globally. It places emphasis on the areas and populations where severe and extensive human rights violations of ethnic, linguistic, and religious minorities are taking place which has been completely overlooked by the mainstream media.

GHRD is integrally distinctive from other organizations as it focuses on those issues and areas where people have been deprived of their rights and both government and local authorities have not reflected much support. GHRD is distinctive, because of its permanent presence of local observers, who produce genuine information and reports of distinctive quality.

The work of GHRD is based on three pillars:

– Human Rights Monitoring and Advocacy
– Human Rights Education
– Human Rights Empowerment

GHRD monitors and investigates human rights violations in order to raise awareness for these issues on national and international levels. GHRD carries out a variety of activities which enables the organization to report human rights violations in the countries it operates in.

These activities include:
– Coordinating investigation missions into human rights violations
– Presentations and human rights reports based on field investigations
– Research and media monitoring

Our headquarters, based in The Hague, The Netherlands, closely cooperates with partners, local experts and human rights activists throughout the globe.
