Armenia - Human Rights House in Armenia

Human Rights House Yerevan unites 11 organisations working in various fields related to human rights protection aiming to create “one access door” services for the beneficiaries and by this eliminate the difficulties that citizens may face for getting support and services for their human rights protection. The House was registered in Armenia in 2014 and became an associated member of the Human Rights House Network in 2012. It will serve also as a platform for different civil society organisations, movements and civic initiatives to join the effort and empower human rights protection in Armenia.
