About Foundation Rene Cassin-International Institute for Human Rights
True to the vision and the work of Rene Cassin, the Foundation has been created by a decree published in 2015. This new Foundation replaced the International institute of Human Rights and takes its full name of International Institute of Human Rights- Foundation Rene Cassin. It aims to implement the defense and the promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms through teaching and research in complete independence and in a scientific spirit. This Foundation is chaired by Jean-Paul Costa and it is based in Strasbourg, symbolic city of the rule of law and human rights. Independent and apolitical, it embodies a bridge between the European Court of Human Rights, the Council of Europe and the University of Strasbourg while staying distinct from these entities.
The IIHR, founded in 1969 by René Cassin, is a foundation working for the promotion and the protection of human rights through research and training.
