INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENSE COMMISSARIAT (IHRDC-CIPDH) promotes and protects human rights for all, IHRDC-CIPDH leads global human rights efforts speaks out objectively in the face of human rights violations worldwide. We provide a forum for identifying, highlighting and developing responses to today’s human rights challenges, and act as the principal focal point of human rights research, education, public information, and advocacy activities worldwide.

Since Governments have the primary responsibility to protect human rights, the IHRDC-CIPDH provides assistance to Governments, such as expertise and technical trainings in the areas of administration of justice, legislative reform, and electoral process, to help implement international human rights standards on the ground. We also assist other entities with responsibility to protect human rights to fulfil their obligations and individuals to realize their rights.

IHRDC-CIPDH partners with leaders worldwide to focus awareness on areas of critical importance in the struggle for human rights and lend a hand to some of the less-publicized cases of human rights abuse and neglect.
