The Danish Institute for Human Rights implements human rights programmes in partnership with state institutions and civil society organizations in Denmark and internationally. We support a number of organizations in their work to promote human rights. It is the aim of the Institute to make the projects sustainable and nationally anchored.
The work is rights based and rooted in the human rights obligations held by Denmark. Among other things, the Institute contributes with knowledge, concepts and analyses and forms part of various networks. The Institute selects different focus areas and works strategically with these in various ways.
