The Netherlands Helsinki Committee is a non-governmental organisation that promotes human rights and strengthens the rule of law and democracy in all countries of Europe, including the Central Asian countries participating in the OSCE.
Our work lies primarily in executing projects to strengthen legal protection and improve public policies that affect vulnerable or disadvantaged groups. We support human rights NGOs in withstanding governmental pressure. Additionally, we work to improve the implementation of OSCE human dimension commitments and other international human rights agreements. We actively take part in several civil society networks of human rights NGOs in Europe.
