Who are we?

Back to homepage

The Human Rights Agency (HRA) is an observatory of human rights violations and a cooperation and development network in Africa. Our main mission aims to disseminate reliable information on violence targeting women, children, vulnerable populations, ethnic or confessional minorities, cultural heritage or even endangered animal and plant species. HRA mainly focuses on communities that are ignored and have little or no support. We also wish to launch human rights training projects according to UN standards in developed, emerging or developing countries in order to allow the weakest to better defend their rights.

Our goals

Our NGO has set the following objectives:

• Disseminate information on the conflicts, wars and human rights violations plaguing the African continent, drawing on first-hand sources.

• Consolidate cooperation within African civil society.

• Work for the effective universal and indivisible application in Africa of international conventions, covenants and all international and regional instruments in the field of civil, political, economic, religious, linguistic, social, artistic and cultural rights.

• Promote respect for the rule of law, national sovereignty, and a just international economic and social order and, in particular, the right to sustainable development that respects the environment.

• Combat the multiple forms of injustice, illegality, arbitrariness, corruption, impunity, intolerance, torture, enforced disappearances, war crimes, genocides, all crimes against humanity and any violation of humanitarian law.

• Fight in favor of respect for individual freedoms in the processing of computerized data and the protection of privacy.
• Protect linguistic, ethnic and religious diversity.

• Denounce the abuses of governments and international institutions.

• Defend freedom of expression and promote diversity and multiplicity of points of view.
