News from the continents

The ISHR is located in several eastern and western African countries and reports on human rights violations across the continent.

The International Society for Human Rights features a Latin American Committee, with groups and sections in Colombia, Guatemala, and Nicaragua, as well as in Cuba and the United States. Our sections report on current human rights challenges in the countries and in the region, which is facing significant humanitarian crises as well as severe violations of basic freedoms in many cases.

The Australian Section of the International Society for Human Rights supports numerous humanitarian projects in Southeast Asia, and the headquarters in Germany frequently reports on human rights violations in many Asian countries, including North Korea, China, and Vietnam in East Asia, as well as in Pakistan and Myanmar.

The history of the International Society for Human Rights is closely tied to that of the Soviet Union. After its fall in 1991, ISHR sections formed in many countries of the former USSR, including all six countries of the Eastern Partnership (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine) as well as in Russia. Currently, exciting joint projects regarding freedom of information and media and strengthening civil society actors are being carried out in the region by the sections, iniated by the ISHR in Germany, with support from the German Federal Foreign Office.

The International Society for Human Rights (ISHR) is represented throughout Eastern and Western Europe, which primarily address issues related to violations of civil and political rights at home and abroad. The ISHR headquarters are located in Germany, and the German section carries out human rights work for ten different target countries worldwide.

The ISHR is excited to introduce its new group located in northern Iraq, which advocates for justice for victims of genocide under IS, and helps to coordinate humanitarian aid from Germany to refugee and IDP camps. The German section of the ISHR focuses heavily on human rights issues in the MENA region, including on women’s rights, and on persecution of relgious minorities and human rights defenders.
