Newsletter

Monthly newsletter from the Human Rights Houses and the Human Rights House Foundation (HRHF)

In our April Newsletter, we report on case against the President of the Belarusian Human Rights House, Tatsiana Reviaka, who was arrested while monitoring protests in March. Read about her arrest and the charges against her, and about how this is part of the systematic mechanisms that the Belarusian authorities use to create fear and deter people from expressing views or organising in a way that the Government deems undesirable.

Crimean human rights defender Olga Skrypnyk, Head of the Crimean Human Rights Group. discusses the motivation, aims, and impact of her organisation, the challenges faced by internally displaced persons (IDPs), the need to protect the human rights of all Crimeans, and her plans and priorities for the future.

HRHF's Head of Advocacy, Florian Irminger, gives his analysis of the first UN Security Council debate dedicated to human rights, addressing the importance of a Security Council focus on human rights for international peace and security, and what role civil society should play in this.
