Human rights abuses can be front page stories. They can also be hidden away from the public, known only to the victims and perpetrators. In all cases, in order to end human rights abuses, we need to know what is happening, why it is happening, who is being harmed, and who is responsible.
The Advocates for Human Rights carries out monitoring and fact-finding in partnership with activists around the world, publishing reports that seek to uncover the truth of human rights violations wherever they occur. Those reports drive legal reforms, domestic and United Nations advocacy, protections for asylum seekers, and training on combating and documenting human rights violations.
We also provide resources for advocates and activists to carry out their own human rights campaigns, with detailed information based on decades of our own work and the work of our partners.
