At ISHR, we believe in supporting human rights defenders so they have the tools and networks they need to be effective and influential in promoting, protecting and contributing to the realisation of human rights.
For the past 35 years, we have provided human rights defenders with practical and expert training, information, strategic advice and advocacy support, so they have the tools and capacities to engage and influence international, regional and national mechanisms and actors and, through them, to contribute to the promotion, protection and realisation of human rights at all levels.
ISHR Academy is ISHR’s e-learning space, helping human rights defenders strengthen their advocacy skills with the UN for greater impact on the ground. Our learning modules demystify the UN human rights system and build capacity to push for change. Discover new tools, insider tips, Defender Stories, and more!
