Who we are

Based in Geneva, HURIDOCS is an NGO that since 1982 supports human rights defenders use information technologies and documentation methods to organize and present data about violations. We are passionate about providing NGOs with the simplest and most efficient tools and techniques to advocate for their cause. 

Our team working in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe understands the specific challenges of each of these contexts. 

We want human rights defenders to be able to:

  • Organize an efficient strategy as a result of the information they have
  • Use tools and methods that improve the impact of their work at a global level

We also aim to strengthen international and regional human rights mechanisms by making their datasets – case law, reports, communications or resolutions – openly accessible, leading to more effective advocacy and litigation.
