Human rights organization

MAN AND LAW

We work so that we could live in a society where rights and freedoms are observed and respected. A law-governed society means comfort and security, opportunities for self-realization and acceptance within the society. The law is consistent; it should be applied to everyone equally.

Three pillars of our work

We protect each individual from the arbitrariness of the state, prevent violations by the authorities and share our knowledge.

Legal protection

Every person is valuable. We protect a particular person with his or her human dignity and freedoms: we demand from the state the realization of rights and inadmissibility of interference with freedoms.

Public control

We help to form a community of informed citizens who visit places of potential arbitrariness of the state: courts, police, places of detention, etc. Observers do not interfere in the process, but monitor and record violations. Then they bring to the state’s attention what needs to be corrected.

Education

We explain to citizens how to behave with the authorities in a given situation, because if people know their rights, they are already half protected. Knowledge gives strength and awareness that something depends on each individual person. And we train representatives of the authorities in human rights to make the state properly fulfil its duties.
