Our Mission

IHRDF is an international, neutral and independent non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of human rights.

IHRDF is a voice for the voiceless and an advocate for human rights for people all over the world. It is a human rights advocacy organization that works to ensure a level playing field for all human beings.

Our mission is to enhance the security and the protection of human rights defenders, especially those who fight for their legitimate rights and for the rights of others as they are guaranteed by the international humanitarian law and the human rights conventions, to ensure effective human rights and justice for all.

IHRDF works on issues of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by monitoring, research and analysis in the field of human rights, investigating abuses and exposing the facts, using pressure on governments to respect the rights and secure justice as well as promotion of democracy and the rule of law on the national and international level to stop human rights abuses.

IHRDF’s mission is to address the legal and human rights challenges facing India. The organization seeks to create opportunities through which legal institutions in India can develop norms and practices that prevent human rights violations. Hence, our efforts are geared towards creating a new legal awareness in India by promoting Indian perspectives on international justice and by being a consistent and reliable reference to the international community on human rights and justice development in India.
