What we aim to achieve

Drawing by Maria Schwarz, scholar, 2009

More than half a century has passed since the United Nations Organisation laid down the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (10.12.1948) but, nevertheless, these basic human rights have still not been successfully granted to all individuals.

The basic rights in life are in fact, for millions of people today, still not valid. We want to help change this. HRI's objective is to make a contribution to granting and respecting Human Rights throughout the world.
