Human rights work

Everyone should be able to exercise their civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. We stand up for people whose rights are violated or threatened.

We initiate petitions as well as calls to prayer and carry out concrete projects in various countries to protect human rights. A particular focus is on religious freedom. In this regard, we advocate for religious tolerance and for the rights of persecuted religious communities.

 Initiative Lieferkettengesetz

The Supply Chain Law Initiative is an alliance of numerous organisations. Its common goal is a world in which companies respect human rights and avoid environmental destruction.

When human rights are violated through exploitation of the Global South, we support those affected and remind societies of their global social responsibility. One example is the environmental pollution caused by oil production in South Sudan which endangers the health of more than 600,000 people.

In addition, as a member of the Supply Chain Law Initiative, we are committed to protecting human rights and the environment along global supply chains. We also hold consultative status with the United Nations Human Rights Council.

You can read about the organisation’s human rights work in more detail in our annual report.

I would like to support your work.
