HR&D was born out of our wish to engage in human rights discussions, and to stimulate a dialogue between young and old, north and south, without any barriers of gender, age, origin, occupation or world view.
We wish to:
- Facilitate the access to human rights knowledge and thinking to persons outside the usual human rights circles;
- Stimulate the connection between human rights and different fields of science and professional activities, promoting a multidisciplinary approach to human rights and democracy; and
- Offer a source of inspiration and material for teaching, lobbying and advocacy for teachers, civil society organisations, and individual human rights defenders and activists.
