All children have age specific rights, in addition to all the other human rights, so that they can live a life of dignity during childhood and beyond. Every person below 18 years of age is a child, and entitled to all these rights.
Correcting the privileging of the male and the masculine over all other genders is an important historical task for the progress of humanity and the human race. Gender equity - the goal of gender justice - is informed by intersectionality.
Dalit & Tribal Rights
Socially excluded and vulnerable communities need to have a seat at the high table, with voice and agency to determine their priorities in development and in execution, and determine the basic characteristics of the welfare state
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. We track the progress towards all 17 goals for specific socially excluded and vulnerable communities.
Various interest groups such as Fishing People’s Organisations, Non-Government Organisations, Environmental and Consumer Groups, Academics, Lawyers and activists felt the need to evolve a broad based forum to protect the rights of the coastal communities and the coast from environmental degradation.
Local self-government is the first and closest government to the communities. Empowered local government institutions, with equitable participation and inclusion of all communities in decision making. In addition to the training, HRF provides support (including litigation) when WPPs are prevented from discharging their duties.
Balancing the scales of justice with compassion and healing has been an elusive goal across the ages. It requires a nuanced, multifaceted engagement with an ecosystem that encompasses the constitution, law, judiciary, lawyers, police, correctional institutions, victims, survivors, accused, undertrials, convicts, families and communities.
HRF conducts a range of human rights courses – from the introductory to advanced, from specialised/thematic focused to comprehensive integrated courses, covering the history, the theory, tools, and practical tips and workarounds in the field. Customised courses are conducted for academic institutions, government agencies and other civil society organisations on request.
Securing the progress of the coastal communities, the health of the coastal ecosystem and equity in the blue economy is essential for the safety and security of the planet
Budget research, analysis and advocacy has gained increasing importance in the pursuit of social justice—whether for socially excluded communities, women or children.
