Individuals At Risk
Our Individuals at Risk team conducts research and runs campaigns to raise awareness about prisoners who have been tortured, communities who have been forcibly evicted, writers and artists whose expression has been unfairly restricted, and other people whose rights are at imminent risk.
Gender Based Violence
Violence against women and girls in India is widespread. Despite some progressive legislative measures in recent years, brought about due to pressure from women’s rights movements, the media and public campaigns, many women continue to experience discrimination and violence in their everyday lives.
Human Rights Education
The Human Rights Education (HRE) programme aims to create a rights-respecting society in India by promoting the values and principles of human rights in communities.
We do this by engaging with formal education systems – especially those that focus on children and young people – to bring human rights into everyday life. Currently, we work with schools, colleges, students, teachers and educational systems by providing training, activity kits and platforms through which young people can come together to learn and take action on human rights issues important to them.
Business and Human Rights
Adivasis, indigenous communities in India, constitute about 8% of India’s population. They rely on their lands and forests for their livelihoods. Coal mining and other business activities have unlawfully displaced hundreds of Adivasi people in central India. We are standing up for their rights.
