About Us

Global Human Rights Defence (GHRD) is a UN ECOSOC NGO human rights organization based in The Hague that commits itself to the protection of human rights and credible human rights reporting. We pursue avenues that have received little to no attention from the general public and news coverage. We have research teams dedicated to different topics under the broad umbrella of human rights, such as Women’s Rights, Children’s Rights, or International Justice, and to different regions – East Asia, Southeast Asia and Pacific, Pakistan, Middle East, and Europe. We are also proud of our special United Nations research team that covers the various Human Rights Council sessions and General Assembly sessions.


Rooted in the belief that every human being, irrespective of race, religion, gender, or background, deserves to live a life free from discrimination, oppression, and injustice, GHRD’s journey is inspired by the unfading principle that selfless action is the true agent of positive change. Drawing upon the universal principles of empathy and compassion, we tirelessly work towards building bridges, forging alliances, and nurturing a global community where human rights flourish.


At the core of our mission lies an unwavering dedication to our four pivotal pillars of human rights advocacy. Our four pillars are:


Through rigorous scrutiny and unwavering vigilance, we ensure that human rights are upheld and protected, leaving no room for injustice to prevail.


We stand as advocates for the voiceless, tirelessly working to shape policies and raise awareness, because every individual deserves to live free from oppression and discrimination.


Empowering minds with the knowledge of their rights, we pave the way for a more just and equitable world, where awareness becomes the cornerstone of lasting change.


We believe in nurturing self-reliance and resilience, for true empowerment arises when individuals have the tools and confidence to stand up for their rights and the rights of others
