Human Rights House Foundation


Azerbaijan – Human Rights House in Azerbaijan

The idea of establishing a Human Rights House in Baku appeared for the first time in 2003. In 2007, the HRH Azerbaijan was registered as an international branch of the HRHF, and officially opened in 2009. In accordance with the order of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Justice of 10 March 2011 the activities of HRH Azerbaijan have been ceased. Partner organisations of HRH Azerbaijan continue all activities, until an agreement with authorities on the reopening of HRH Azerbaijan is reached.
