Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights

In 1994, the Warsaw-based Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights became one of the founding members of the network of Human Rights Houses.



A long-time actor in human rights protection, Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights (HFHR) works to develop a culture based on respect for human rights in Poland and abroad.

It is one of the oldest non-governmental organisations acting in the field of human rights protection in Poland. HFHR’s main areas of activity are: international and national education; strategic litigation; providing legal advice; monitoring the human rights dimension of actions taken by public authorities; and organising WATCH DOCS human rights in film, one of the world’s largest human rights film festivals.
