International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH)

Human Rights are the very foundation of a society that guarantees equality, dignity and freedom for each human being. The International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), through its legitimacy, its experience, its methods and its credibility, has a unique role to play in contributing to their realisation.

Since 2009, FIDH has singled out certain areas of prime concern, for which it has determined action priorities:

  • Freedom and capacity to act of human rights defenders,
  • Universality of rights, in particular those of women and migrants, whose - inequitable treatment constitutes a major obstacle for the progress of mankind,
  • Effectiveness of Human Rights, to put an end to the impunity of authors of violations, who are not called to account, be they individuals, States or business enterprises,
  • Respect for Human Rights and the Rule of Law in times of conflict, emergency or political transition.

In order to act effectively on such complex issues and to achieve concrete results, FIDH has also determined a number of internal objectives:

  • To reinforce interaction and proximity with its member and partner organisations, in particular by deploying new decentralised offices in nearly all regions,
  • To continue developing the professionalism of the movement,
  • To reinforce FIDH’s capacity to mobilise public opinion and political circles,
  • And to consolidate the increase in its financial resources and its sustainability, essential prerequisites for fulfilling its ambitions.

FIDH acts in an international context that is both complex and unsettled. In order to meet all these challenges, FIDH must be clear-sighted, and modest regarding its capabilities; it must also define its priorities and continually evaluate its action. The quest for universal and effective rights is the vital lead for FIDH to embody a universal Human Rights movement.
