We interfere when ethnic or religious minorities or indigenous peoples are oppressed and human rights are violated. We campaign for the survival and cultural existence of threatened peoples – independent from any political or religious affiliation.
We inform the public, the media and politicians about the situation of threatened peoples and minorities. Our reports, documentations and press releases call the attention of authorities and decision-makers. We provide specialist advice, expert testimonies and legal advice to lawyers and in courts.
We help to ensure that international organisations and institutions, states and non-state-actors assume their responsibility for the protection of minorities, indigenous peoples and human rights.
We campaign for the survival and the rights of minorities and indigenous peoples and for individual members of these groups suffering persecution. Standing alongside the victims we protest against human rights violations and call for justice, international solidarity and help.
We are in close contact with organisations and representatives of threatened peoples who are often marginalized and excluded from decision-making. This close cooperation is the key to achieve lasting solutions in order to secure a future worth living – for everyone. Worldwide.
We give a voice to
- Victims of Genocide
- Ethnic and religious minorities which are discriminated, oppressed, threatened by extinction
- Those who risk their lives fighting for threatened peoples and minority rights
- Indigenous Peoples suffering the deadly consequences of globalisation and climate change
