Rights and Justice
Promoting equality, protecting the rights of people, preventing and developing responses to violence and discrimination.
We support the achievement of these objectives through the projects and activities we implement in favour of:
- Groups at risk of or victims of discrimination, hate speech, hate crime, violence (including Roma people, LGBTIQ people and minority communities);
- Children, Young People, Women and Men at risk of experiencing violence, victims or perpetrators of violence;
- Professionals, institutions, public and private support services.
We identify our fields of intervention through extensive research and needs assessments on the topics of human rights and justice.
We are passionate about gender equality, and we promote it through awareness-raising campaigns and training programmes for young people, students and teachers. We believe that by creating gender equal societies, we also reduce violence and discrimination more in general.
We are committed to protecting survivors of violence, and to supporting their empowerment and resilience. We do that by piloting model support services and by assessing their impact on survivors of gender-based violence, domestic violence, sexual violence and harassment, forced marriage, intimate partner violence, female genital mutilation, trafficking of human beings, and on perpetrators.
We strive for a world without discrimination, hate crime, hate speech, online hate speech, bullying, cyber-bullying, by developing technological tools and new solutions to prevent them.
We support and encourage professionals from relevant fields, including law enforcement authorities, education and health authorities, to take leadership and carry out initiatives for the prevention of child exploitation, sexual violence against children and young people, through capacity building activities.
We critically reflect on, evaluate and recommend changes in policy to favour labour and social inclusion of survivors of violence, care leavers and marginalized groups.
