Our Mission and Vision

Our Mission

We solve information challenges to maximize the impact of human rights organizations across the world.

We want human rights organizations to operate efficiently and productively, realize the potential of their often hard-earned information, and achieve their maximum impact.

Our Vision

In our vision, human rights defenders can both readily access and effectively employ outstanding information technologies built for their needs.

We envision defenders equipped with readily accessible information technologies catered to their unique work and the strong digital skill set and methodological understanding to utilize those technologies effectively.

“The rapid increase of interest in human rights coincides with the rapid development of information technology. Unless a common and universal system of communication is evolved, valuable information will be wasted, existing international machinery will not function, and implementation not monitored.” – Martin Ennals, HURIDOCS Founding President
