Our annual report shows the actions taken by Human Rights House Foundation (HRHF) and the network of Human Rights Houses. It explores how the vibrant communities and partnerships we have helped to build for decades – Human Rights Houses – showed the strength of their potential. Together, we were visible and we increased our cooperation, in advocacy, in capacity building, and in protection, setting the stage to meet the challenges we face.

Looking to the long term, we took ownership in our response to worrying trends. We reached out to new and existing partners to build coalitions, and laid the foundations for engagement in our joint case studies, reports, and events.

We hope these stories inform and enlighten, energise and increase opportunities for cooperation, and trigger debate and inspire ideas.
