Human Rights House Crimea
Human Rights House Crimea unites four organisations that operate in exile in Kyiv.
Set to be formally established in exile in Kyiv, Human Rights House Crimea aims to develop, strengthen, and coordinate the capacity of organisations involved in human rights protection in Crimea, ensuring more effective and systematic human rights work. It will focus on promoting and observing the human rights of all citizens on the occupied peninsula.
Representatives of the House organised a joint Human Rights House mission to Crimea in 2018. This rare opportunity to report first-hand on the human rights situation increased awareness of human rights violations in Crimea and was the basis for the landmark report Crimea: Breaking the Wall of Silence.
Bringing to life the stories of people at risk, the House created “Suitcases of Crimean Human Rights Defenders”, an exhibition of belongings telling about the lives of people forced to flee their homes. Both report and exhibition continue to gain traction and attention with events across Europe.
