About International Federation for Human Rights

The International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) is an international human rights NGO federating 184 organisations from 112 countries. The organization is active in defending all civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights as set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. For FIDH, transforming societies relies on the work of local actors. Therefore, FIDH’s activities aim to reinforce their capacities and their influence. The organization acts at national, regional and international levels in support of its member and partner organisations to address human rights abuses and consolidate democratic processes. Its work is directed at States and those in power, such as armed opposition groups and multinational corporations. Its primary beneficiaries are national human rights organisations who are members of FIDH, and through them, the victims of human rights violations. FIDH also cooperates with other local partner organisations and actors of change.
