What Are Human Rights?

Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world. They apply regardless of where you are from, what you believe or how you choose to live your life. They should never be taken away. These basic rights are based on shared values like dignity, fairness, equality, respect and independence. These values are defined and protected by laws around the world.

Our Vision

Our vision is a United Arab Emirates and wider Middle East where justice, equality and Human Rights are upheld, protected and promoted in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and where those that act with disregard and contempt for human rights are bought to justice.
We are working towards an ambitious goal. We won’t get there overnight, and we can’t make it on our own, but together we will bring about a better world.

How We Help


We identify injustice, inequality and other Human Rights violations in the UAE and the wider Middle East.


When we identify injustice, inequality and other Human Rights violations we alert the world’s media and lobby policymakers and national, international and intergovernmental institutions for change.


We provide pro bono legal advocacy, crisis management and media support to those suffering injustice, inequality and other Human Rights violations.


We work to resolve individual cases of injustice, inequality and other Human Rights violations, and we work with the international community to effect lasting policy reform and change to help prevent future injustice.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”




“Freedom is a timeless value … All countries have committed to protecting individual freedoms on paper – but in practice, too many break their pledge.”




“The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”




“Peace can only last where human rights are respected … and where individuals and nations are free.”
