Human Rights House Foundation establishes, supports, and connects Human Rights Houses – coalitions of civil society organisations working together to advance human rights at home and abroad.
Today, more than 80 civil society organisations are united in Human Rights Houses in an international network active across Eastern Europe, the Western Balkans, and the Caucasus.
Together, we advocate for the freedoms of assembly, association, and expression and the right to be a human rights defender.

“The perpetrators of human rights violations and war crimes must be held accountable… we won’t stop [until then].”
Human rights defenders work to improve societies and contribute to peace and democracy. Defenders are agents for positive change and development. They are key in protecting against human rights violations and in advancing universal human rights.
