Human rights are simply an ideal for many people in the world who face discrimination, violence, or repression or lack access to schooling, medical care or clean water.
At the international level, strong legal protections, courts, and human rights monitoring bodies provide unique and invaluable opportunities for advocates to push for justice and equality when their own governments are unable or unwilling to guarantee their fundamental freedoms. But, these international institutions are underutilized and often unfamiliar to advocates.
The International Justice Resource Center was founded in 2011 to help advocates understand and effectively use international human rights protections - with the help of our online resource hub, trainings, and technical support. In just three years, we have reached people in 172 countries.
With your help, we can go global! Let's fill in the human rights gap in all 193 countries of the world!
