About HRH Bergen
The Egil Rafto Human Rights House (the Human Rights House in Bergen) is a vital nexus and a working community for human rights NGOs in Bergen. Among the users are local branches of national and international organisations. Founded in 1997 in memory of the journalist Egil Rafto, it was officially opened in 1999.
The organisations have few employees and limited sources but draw upon active volunteers and work towards a more extensive and comprehensive collaboration in the human rights community.
The main objectives of the house are:
- To be a focal point, in Bergen, of information where schools, students, organisations and others can find information related to human rights
- To contribute to increased collaboration between the organisations. The organisations can share competence and network
- To reduce costs by sharing facilities, activities and technical equipment
- To gather several organizations in one house to make them more efficient. It is also easier to make the organizations more visible in their local environment.
The Rafto House cooperates closely on professional matters with the following educational and research institutions:
