Human Rights House Tbilisi

Human Rights House Tbilisi was established in Georgia in 2010. Today the House unites 5 organisations under its roof.

About

Human Rights House Tbilisi unites five Georgian civil society organisations working in different fields of human rights. They share a physical space, enhancing co-operation and joint activities and jointly advocating for better protection of human rights. The member organisations provide legal and psychological services, work to improve legislation, unite in advocacy, and host educational events on human rights. They focus on protection of human rights defenders, activists, and journalists at risk, particularly from Azerbaijan.

The case of Afgan Mukhtarli was a challenging focus for the House in 2017. Mukhtarli is an Azerbaijani journalist and beneficiary of the House protection programme, who was allegedly abducted in Tbilisi. The House is also aware of surveillance and threats to other Azerbaijani activists and journalists living in Georgia. Together with providing legal support, the House took immediate action to organise advocacy and lobbying activities. The House will continue to stand up for the rights of others.
